Izumo Tours

Izumo is a coastal city in Shimane Prefecture in the Chigoku region, known across Japan as the home of one of the Shinto religion’s most important shrines – Izumo Grand Shrine.

Near Matsue City, where Shimane Prefecture touches the Pacific, sits the coastal city of Izumo, where the history of Japan’s Shinto religion stretches back even before the founding of Kyoto and Nara. Mentioned in Japan’s oldest national chronicles, the region was given by the sun goddess Amaterasu to Okuninushi – the deity that created Japan. The Grand Shrine which sits there today honors Okuninushi, not only as the maker of the country, but as the deity of good marriages and relationships. Once a year, the locals celebrate the Kamiari Festival – the time when all the deities of Japan gather to meet at Izumo Shrine. Additional charms of Izumo include the old Izumo Taisha Railway station – central hub of the bygone JR Taisha Line which once connected the region to Kyoto and preserves a distinct Japanese architectural style. The station is now a museum, complete with mannequin railway workers posed beside old ticket machines and other equipment.
