Meno Shop Kawashima (めのうの店 川島)

4.0

Souvenirs

This shop just in front of Matsue castle specializes in agate crafts. Founded in 1877, they specialize in creating Magatama stones, small comma-shaped traditional charms, made from the increasingly rare Izumo-mined blue agate (also jasper or Izumo stone). Their original magatama designs are based on ancient patterns and created with long, painstaking care. The thickness, curve, and polished texture are all obsessively worked to create a unique finished form. Their deeply blue stones are made with all the pride of the Sanin region's oldest stone shop.

Review of Meno no Mise Kawashima

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/07/11 目の保養になります
店構えがいかにも高級な感じがする勾玉やメノウを扱っているお店です。でも入ってみると、ストラップなど若者向けの製品もあったりして、カジュアルと高級品の両方ありますので、結構楽しめます。

          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.
