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.

There are various shops and the cityscape is cute. It is also recommended to rent a bicycle because it is large

The atmosphere of the streets reminiscent of ancient times will heal your heart. It is a stylish town where symbiosis with innovative things such as German-made bread, retro miscellaneous goods, silver accessories, clothes, etc.

I walked around, but I think it is necessary to devise a little more beautiful scenery and not be bored.
Also, the budget is higher for something.
I went to the dumpling shop and enjoyed it but it was closed and the shop of potato donut was open but it was already closed at 12 o'clock on the way back ...

Just walking has lots of wonderful sights that seems to be overlooked.

The explanation of the local guide was easy to understand, polite and I got it very kind. I would like to ask again next time.

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.
