Area Map

Izumo Taisha Shrine
The Izumo Taisha shrine is popular as a matchmaker and a power spot. It is a very old and traditional shrine that the story of its foundation has been conveyed for generations in Japanese myths. The 24-meter-high main building was built in 1744, but the original building built in the Heian Period was said to be 48-meter-high. According to Japanese myths, all gods gather at the shrine in Lunar 10th month. Therefore, Lunar 10th month has been traditionally called “no-god month” in Japan, but only in the Izumo Region the month is called “god month.” The story tells us how the shrine is special and important to Japanese gods.
