We extend our deepest sympathies for all of those who were affected by the heavy rainfall from July 5th.

All sightseeing facilities and accommodations in Shimane were fortunate enough to not have been heavily affected by the heavy rainfall.

However, transportation facilities routed in/out of Shimane were affected causing delays and closures in certain areas. Listed below is the information on the status of facilities routed to and from Shimane. Please kindly check the sites below for status updates on those facilities when visiting Shimane.

We look forward to seeing you all here in Shimane!
