3.5

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

Iwami Silver Mine was controlled by the “Bakufu” (Shogunate) prefectural governor in the Edo period. The museum sits on the ruins of the Oomori local governor’s office. The building which was built in 1902 was used just as it was as the Nima district office, and opened as a museum in 1976. You can learn the history of the Iwami Silver Mine with pictorial scrolls, archives and mining tools on display.

This historic building used to be the Magistrates Office in the past. However since the silver mines were closed a new destination had to be found. So they made a museum out if it. At present it...

After 2 hours of hill walk in the World Heritage site area, this site was a good break for me.

Regarding the items displayed, I would not recommend...
Reviewed:2020/07/06 外から見るだけでよいかも。
表側は代官屋敷の門構えでわくわくするのですが、中に入ると普通の建物です。残念ながら有料のわりに無料展示の石見銀山世界遺産センターくらいの情報量なので必見という感じではありませんでした。

          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.
