Yunotsu Townscape Cutouts - Besides being an onsen hot spring town, it was the main port for shipping silver back in the heyday of Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine. The cutout shows silver miners. Yunotsu is a classic Edo period hot spring town, west of the Iwami Ginzan site. Besides its role as a pleasure center, during the heyday of Iwami Ginza Silver Mine it held the important role of administrative capital and organized the storage and shipping of the silver from inland Iwami. Outdoorsy types will note that the old silver path, used for transporting silver from the mines to the port, is now a 12 km hiking trail with direct link Yunotsu-Iwami.
