“Stores working to prevent the spread of COVID-19” in Shimane

We not only introduce the facilities in Shimane voluntarily implementing infection prevention measures on the prefecture website, we also offer support so that citizens can use these stores with peace of mind, by issuing a written certification of initiatives to business owners and displaying them in stores.

Tourism-related business owners in Shimane are working hard to implement infection prevention measures every day, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and allow visitors to enjoy their travel with peace of mind.
