Iwami Ginzan is a historic silver mine, which rose to prominence during the war states periods in the 16th century and the early Edo period in the 17th century. This is the only industry-based UNESCO World Heritage Site in Asia, and you can visit mine shafts, museums, historical residences, and neighboring shrines and temples.

The area has atmospheric street scenes in the wooded hillsides, evoking the long history, and it feels like time goes by very slowly. The main streets and a walking path makes up a 5km loop. Prepare proper walking shoes and outfits.

The park itself is small, with a small open rest hut as the only thing to note.

It's basically at the starting point of the tourist (walking, cycling) autobahn towards Ryūgenji shaft.

Close by is the tourist information (which is unfriendly and not really helpful) and the guide association.

ただ歩いているだけだと見過ごしそうな素敵な見所がたくさんあります。

地元ガイドさんの説明は分かりやすく丁寧で、すごく親切にしていただきました。次回もまたお願いしたいです。

現地に入ると自転車を借りれる。むしろ借りないと時間がかかる。この場所は空気が何か違う。霊感の強い人は注意が必要

レンタサイクルでさくさくか、ガイド依頼でじっくりか、現地入りするまでに、と言うより旅行計画立てた時点で、仲間内で決めておいた方が良いと思う。ただの山間の集落では無い。知れば知るほどの「産業」と「自然」の遺産である。マイカー利用の方は世界遺産センターをナビに。そこからバスでは入る方がお薦め。

古い町並みです。
町のお年寄り達のガイドがいらっしゃます。
一緒に 歩くと 違った 町並みに見えて いいかもです。

Since I lived in Matsue City in the Shimane Pref., I know this spot well. Moreover, there are many other tourist spots in the Shimane Pref., such as Izumo Shrine, Lake Shinji, Oki island. Please visit there.
