Beautiful garden attached to the museum
Oct 2020
One day trip to Okuizumo was an unforgettable trip. Okuizumo is a beautiful place with a valuable historical story. Okuizumo, located in Shimane Prefecture has recognized as the sole producer of ancient Japanese style iron. One of the leading ancient practice of iron smelting is called "Tatara". Tatara smelting is a method of the iron-making as a root of the Japanese sword producing process.
The owner of the iron-making site is called Tesshi. The Itohara family residence, a family of Tesshi, is an astonishing memorial museum with the style garden attached to the residence. Itohara family residence opens to the public and attends to the visitor to learn closely about the value of Tatara history.

The Itohara family

This museum, located in the middle of the high mountains, has created a very peaceful and comfortable environment. The warrior Itohara was a powerful family, and the sword and railway were made of high-quality iron sand. The photos and items employed in manufacturing can be seen in the memorial museum. I went with my boys, and iron swords were attractive to them.

Learning about the history of Okuizumo
Nov 2020 • Friends
Itohara Memorial is a precious but less known museum in Okuizumo introducing the history of iron production in the area. You have the feeling that you’re traveling back in time there. There are many beautiful maple trees near the museum as well as a beautiful Japanese garden, which are definitely worth visiting, especially in fall.
