Former Taisha Station

Discover Retro Shimane At The Former Taisha Station
No longer active, the former Taisha Station – located a kilometer south of the famous Izumo Taisha Shrine – is now a historical site open to the public.
Located in Izumo City, Shimane, Izumo Taisha Shrine (or the Izumo Grand Shrine) is said to bestow blessings on bonds of love and every other variety of human relationships. Every year, over six million people travel to pay their respects at this immensely popular shrine.
The former Taisha Station, situated a kilometer south of the Grand Shrine, was used in the past by visitors heading to the shrine. While the station is now closed, anyone can stop by and check out its wooden architecture. We’d like to give you a tour of the remnants of the old railway station.
