The western region of Shimane Prefecture has been producing roof tiles for a long time. Sekishu roof tiles in particular are known for their uniqueness. By baking them at a high temperature, the tiles are made hard and strong. Some modern-day crafts are also made using these traditional techniques. For example, there are products such as lamp shades and tableware that combine traditional motifs and modern patterns.
