  • Nice to learn about Tatara sword which is a huge traditional industry in Okuizumo :)
  • I visited the museum as part of an Okuizumo tour. The most interesting exhibits are the bellows used in making iron. You can try them out! There are demonstrations for sword making and sword fighting. You can volunteer to stoke the fire and hammer the metal. You can hold real katanas too.
  • A seriously awesome place to learn about the art of making of katana.. The Japanese sword...
  • Anciant technology of metal processing
  • It is an exhibition that the culture of steelmaking is introduced from the Hittite Empire (now Turkey) far away to Japan, and the culture of steelmaking takes root in this region, and the production method and the culture of the region are well understood. In particular, you can understand the enormous process of cutting the mountain and making the iron sand, making the wood charcoal, burning it into a melted mass of sand iron, and further forging it into a first-class ball steel. It is a serious work in the age without the machine. And, I wanted to go because it seems to be used even now as a terraced rice field of the collection place. In addition, the relationship between the mythyyamatano orochi and the sword of Kusanagi of three kinds of sacred vessels is understood. Of the three kinds of sacred instruments, the two swords and the magatama are deeply connected to Izumo, so searching for a relationship is also a pleasure of Izumo's trip.
