The center of the San'in area is a sacred land where the gods have ruled since ancient times. Surrounded by the sacred mountain Daisen, the Sea of Japan, Lake Nakaumi and other seas and mountains, the area was rich in resources and was also a key logistics centre. For this reason, it attracted the attention of powerful people and was sometimes the scene of battles.
