- A journey to trace the tales of Japan’s heritage for smooth, velvety skin
Miwa Ishihara, a freelance news presenter active in the San-in area, traveled to Iwami no Kuni. While following the tales of Japanese heritage sites, she discovered new attractions of Iwami through “tools to connect with the gods” such as Iwami Kagura and Japanese sake.
On a journey to visit the cultural assets that make up the tales of Japan’s heritage, “A mythical world where gods and demons come alive - Kagura, passed down through the generations in Iwami -,” Miwa had precious encounters with the traditions that have been handed down in the Iwami region, the people who protect them and pass them on, and the people who are taking on the challenge of bringing a new style to Iwami.
