A town that gives you a new perspective on contemporary lifestyle. 
Dec 2020
Omori is not just another array of historical houses. Experiencing the town and talking to its people showcases meaningful living that perfectly blends tradition, nature, and modernity.

One of my favorites, stunning town!
Oct 2020
This town is just lovely, I've stated in another review that it might be my favorite small town in all of Japan. The town is bigger then I originally expected, although it's only one street it's quite long, but beautiful! The quaint houses on either side are gorgeous. About half way there is a shrine on a hill, I recommend walking up here to get incredible views of the houses and valley. Walk to the end to another impressive shrine then make your way back up. There are a few shops and restaurants in town. I just loved this town, the houses were all nicely kept up, it was nice seeing what a traditional town looked like.

Perfect combination with the new and the old era.
Dec 2019
Omori is an old town that used to flourish in the past. There is an interesting history. The old house that is still well maintained, which blends in with the current prosperity perfectly. Gives a warm feeling like going back to the past. Try to experience by yourself.

Beautiful historical silver town
Aug 2019
A beautiful historic town which had its best times when the surrounding silver mines were still into operation. Now, that the silver mines are all closed, it is a very peaceful little town with basically one long street of about 1500 meters with left and right typical Japanese wooden houses and shops. During your walk through town you will also notice quite some temples and shrines. It’s really an astonishing place which brings you back to the old Japan of centuries ago. Everything seems to be in a great shape as well.

Surprisingly there are still a lot of people living here. On one spot a 2019 calendar was pinned to the wall with all Omori inhabitants on it with the simple but effective statement: “we are here!”. I loved it.

Step back in time

Small scenic hamlet, 5-10 minutes drive from Iwami Ginzan Museum. Preserved village with large parking and toilet area. Ability to rent bikes to ride around small streets. Scenic location.

Beautiful old town ...
Dec 2017 • Solo
I got a rental bicycle and was cycling around, taking in the sights of the old town. It is really very pretty and especially meaningful when considered in the historical context of the silver mines. Note that food options are very limited and most places were closed by about 3pm (it was early winter); managed to get some food in a local supermarket.

Lovely old town
Jun 2016 • Couples
The old houses are well-maintained and lovely. Different from other old towns in Japan, it is quiet and not commercial at all. There are only small number of shops and restaurants here. Riding through the street is pressure-relief. We only spent an hour in the town, which only allow us to roam through the street. We will come back some day and spend more time to visit famous houses and temples here
