A visit to the Iwami region of Shimane should include some local cuisine. Japan is famed for its delicious food and Umeno Mise ( Look for the sign. うめの店) is no exception. It is a restaurant and cafe in Iwami Ginzan, serving fresh, local fish and vegetables, and some unusual ice-cream favours. You can choose from several weird flavours of ice-cream: wasabi or greenhorse radish paste or vanilla or black sesame. . Iwami is famous as a good place to grow green horseradish. So give it try!
The building is in the old Japanese style so you can take some great pictures while you eat. You can eat lunch and sweets on the first or second floor while enjoying the view.
