  • Tamatsukuri Onsen
    Accommodations / Hot Spring
    Shimane Matsue-shi Tamayucho Tamatsukuri
    A hot spring which has been flowing for 1,300 years whose skin beautifying properties are so great, they are even mentioned in the “Izumo no kuni fudoki,” an ancient historical chronicle of the bygone Izumo Province. The waters of this mildly alkaline hot spring contain an abundance of skin moisturizing metasilicic acid, and some call them a natural facial lotion. The area’s hot spring waters can also be bottled and brought home for personal use or to give as a popular gift. Many studios offering activities such as glasswork are located in the hot spring town area, as well. Tamatsukuriyu-jinja Shrine, located a five minute walk away, is a popular spiritual destination due to its “wishing stone” which is said to grant a wish made while touching it. Many of the area’s hot spring hotels and inns also make their bathhouses open to non-guests, and there are free footbaths for visitors to enjoy.

In addition to hot spring inns and hotels, there are also day trip hot spring bathhouses and free footbaths in the area, giving visitors a wide variety of ways to enjoy the hot springs. The “Oyukake Jizo” Kshitigarbha statue standing at the source of a spring welling up from more than 1,250 meters below the surface is said to grant health and happiness to those who place their hands together in prayer before the figure and pour hot spring water over it. There are also an abundance of sightseeing destinations and things to do nearby, such as Matsue Castle, Shiomi Nawate Street, and pleasure cruises along the Hori River, a canal surrounding the castle.

Shimane Main Areas

around-area-map

What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan's oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
