Taisha-no-Iwaidako Kites Takahashi大社の祝凧 高橋

Souvenirs

Taisha-no-Iwaidako Kites Takahashi has worked hard at making celebratory kites—the taisha-no-Iwaidako decorations and good luck charms—trying to maintain the legacy created by his grandfather and carried through three generations. Each kite is carefully constructed by hand. They were chosen as a Local Traditional Craft for Shimane prefecture in 1982.

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.
