Yasugi (安来) is a city at the eastern end of Shimane Prefecture. Directly to the west is the town of Higashi Izumo and then Matsue city. Directly to the east is the city of Yonago (Tottori Prefecture). On October 1, 2004, the towns of Hakuta and Hirose merged with the city of Yasugi. Formerly important for its steel production, it currently is best known for the comedic yasugibushi dance and as the home to the Adachi Museum of Art.

Get in

By plane

Izumo Airport (出雲空港, IZO) in Izumo to the west, has flights to major Japanese cities and is about 90 minutes away by car. The airport in Yonago, to the east just across the prefectural boundary, is the nearest airport and has a flight to Seoul.

By train

Yasugi is on the San'in Main Line, which runs along western Honshu's Japan Sea coast, starting in Kyoto and passing through Tottori Prefecture on its way to Shimonoseki in Yamaguchi Prefecture.

By bus

There are no night buses in and out of Yasugi. If coming by bus from a large city such as Tokyo take a bus to Yonago and then take the train into Yasugi. The bus terminal in Yonago is next to the train station. You could also take a bus to Matsue and then catch a local train to Yasugi.
