展示が充実している資料館でした。一番面白かったのは日本刀を作る過程を丁寧に説明していたところでした。それ以外の資料も大変良かったです。駅から歩いて行けるのもポイントが高いです。
Reviewed:2018/07/05 伝統的製鉄法「たたら」に関する博物館
館名の「和鋼」とは近代以前の砂鉄を原料に木炭を燃料としてたたら製鉄法で生産された鋼のことを指す言葉です。たたらによる和鋼生産用具や映像、体験コーナーなどもあって和鋼についての知識が深まります。不思議な美しさを秘めた日本刀の紹介もありますので日本刀ファンには必見の博物館です。

あります。日本刀の材料の玉鋼をつくるたたらに関する博物館です。玉鋼を作るのに寝ずの作業でようやくできるとの事。勉強になりました〇

          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.
