This is a beautiful property. I attended a traditional tea ceremony. I can't say that I liked the taste of the tea but I drank it all. You also eat a small sweet cake prior to drinking the tea...

          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.
