Nestling in the southwest of the Shimane prefecture, the historic fortified town of Tsuwano has preserved its romantic allure with picturesque paved alleyways lined by well-preserved samurai houses and sake breweries. A canal, home to thousands of colourful carp and edged by beautiful irises, flows alongside the main shopping street, Tonomachi-dori. Perched atop the town is one of Japan's five largest shrines, Taikodani Inari, dedicated to the divinity Inari.
