Near the University of Shimane in Hamada, you can find one of the best cake shops in Shimane. It’s called, ‘Kashinomi’. They sell many kinds of cakes including crème brulee, strawberry tarts, puddings, fruit tarts, and cookies. You can also order birthday and celebration cakes here and have them decorated by choosing from the photographs of previous cakes.
There are many kinds of cakes like these. In the picture at the top, you can see Tiramisu and Boiled down tea with milk. There are a few tables too so you can enjoy coffee and cake in-store. They have a loyalty card and you get a stamp for every 500 yen you spend. When your card is full you can exchange it for 500 yen to use in the store.
The cake shop is a little hard to find, so I recommend you go to the building of Iwamiru first. If you follow the signs to the University of Shimane you will find Iwamiru on the hill leading the uni: it’ll be on your right, and there is actually a bus stop right in front of Iwamiru. From the bus stop, go back out to the road, turn left and start walking down the hill. Take the first left after about 50 metres, and then the first right after about 20 metres. Go down that street and you’ll see it on your right.
