Tsuwano, located in the westernmost part of Shimane Prefecture, is a small castle town which prides itself on traditional arts and crafts. Tsuwano is sometimes called "Little Kyoto of San-In" for its picturesque town. The town has an abundance of culture from koi ponds to traditional architecture.
Perhaps Tsuwano is more known as a major stop of the Steam Locomotive Train Yamaguchi. The SL runs through the countryside from Yamaguchi City to Tsuwano Station. The retro train stops at Tsuwano for about three hours before making its way back to Shin-Yamaguchi Station.
