With most of the rice harvested, rural villages now hold their harvest matsuri. In the Iwami area of Shimane, this involves all-night performances of Iwami Kagura. Village communities, young and old, gather to enjoy the music and spectacle and occasionally a glass or two of sake.
Kawado is on the JR Sanko from Gotsu to Miyoshi.
