Central San'in: Enter the Worlds of Japan's Gods, Monsters, and Humans

Gods, Yokai, and Sightseeing in Central San'in
Central San'in includes areas in both Tottori Prefecture and Shimane Prefecture, and the region draws travelers thanks to gorgeous natural features, and links to both Shinto gods, and "yokai" (妖怪), or traditional Japanese mythological spirits or monsters. Central San'in is where you'll find historical castle ruins and the grand shrine Izumo Taisha, but also where you'll find the popular Adachi Museum of Art, and the yokai of the classic manga Gegege no Kitaro. Visit Central San'in to explore the boundaries between the world of the living and the world of myth and monsters, and get a glimpse into the heavens of Japanese legend.
