Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine and its Cultural Landscape

January 2021 to March 2022

Yunotsu Night Kagura Dance

At one point, Japan was said to have produced a third of the world's silver. The heart of that production was the silver mine at Iwami. Along with the silver mine site, Yunotsu, with its old port, streetscape, and hot spring, has also been made a World Heritage site. Every Saturday, special performances of Iwami kagura, sacred dances, are offered at Tatsunogozen Shrine. This is the only place you can visit a World Heritage site, bathe in a hot spring that has bubbled forth for 13 centuries, and see traditional culture live, first-hand.
