Shimane Arts Center - Grand Toit島根県芸術文化センター「グラントワ」

Art Museum

This facility is a rare building nationally, serving both as a museum and theater combined. It is a building that uses Sekishu stone tiles on the roof and walls, familiar to the residences of Iwami. The building is beautiful with the characteristic change of expression of the glassy surface of the tiles. A variety of exhibitions and events are held both at the museum and theater to entertain many people.

          Shimane Main Areas


          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.
