Izumo Magatama no Sato Museum (いずも まがたまの里 伝承館)

3.5

Souvenirs

This Izumo magatama-themed sightseeing facility is about a five-minute walk from JR Tamatsukuri-Onsen Station. Tamatsukuri has long been known as Japan’s capital for magatama/stone production, and it is written in the Kojiki (Records of Ancient Matters) that Susanoo-no-mikoto slew the serpent Yamata no Orochi and offered a magatama fashioned in Tamatsukuri to the goddess Amaterasu. The Magatama Museum teaches visitors about the history of the magatama and information about natural stones. The main attraction is the blue meno (agate) magatama, which weighs in at over 75 kilograms. There’s also a workshop where artisans can teach you how to make your own magatama and personal seals. The adjoining restaurant offers a great view of Lake Shinji.

宍道湖のほとりにあります。松江、玉造温泉からも近いです。1階はまが玉づくり工房や、お土産の物販店で、まが玉づくり体験もできるようです。2階はレストランですが、ほとんどツアー専用のようです。軽食のテーブルもあり、そこでカレーを食べました。

          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.
