Grand Toit

Grand Toit is an arts center in Shimane. Both the roof and outer walls of Grand Toit use roof tiles called Sekishu-gawara, a traditional reddish-brown tile of Iwami . Grand Toit's architecture is very striking, featuring a large central courtyard with a shallow pool filling most of it.

The Arts Museum focuses on items connected with Mori Ogai, a famous local novelist, Fashion and Arts from around Iwami. The museum has four galleries.
