Yasugi/ Okuizumo is a region located in the northwestern part of Shimane prefecture. It includes the cities of Yasugi and Unnan, and the county of Nita.
For sightseeing, we recommend Adachi Museum of Art, where you can see one of Japan’s most unique gardens, Tatara Sannai Sugaya, which conveys the history of the traditional Japanese “tatara” method of iron production, Okuizumo Orochi-go Train, which has open windows so you can enjoy the lovely natural landscape.
It is convenient to have a car for getting around this area. From major cities, please use Izumo Enmusubi Airport. The airport is about 1 hour away from the area by car. From Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, it takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes to get to Izumo Enmusubi Airport.
