Former Taisha Station, Izumo

4.4
The last remaining station of the now defunct JR Taisha line, Former Taisha Station represents a fine example of Imperial Crown-style architecture. Constructed in 1924, this cultural treasure is one of only three remaining stations preserved from this period, utilizing wood and traditionally curved, tiled roofs, topped by ridgepole ornaments in a fashion distinct to the country. Exploring the station will give you a sense of how it functioned all those years ago, with mannequin displays of original uniforms, photographs, and even a preserved steam locomotive sitting at the platform. Bring along your camera to capture this typical early 20th-century terminal.

  • Waste station of the retro era in great taste. Is the exhibition of office premises and degoichi. Degoichi is rusted and rotting because a little dangerous is biking.

  • If you visit at Izumo Taisha, here is not to be missed. Also rather cut the time to go to the other tourist destinations worth a visit is. Guests can enjoy a quiet space time has stopped

Where to stay in Izumo

Hotels in Izumo cluster around the railway station, mostly on the northern side. Get a map at the station for the location and prices of a few inexpensive ryokans and family-operated bed and breakfasts scattered around the city. A number of mid-range business establishments lie in the western part of town and south of the railway station. Capacity in the city is limited, so consider exploring the wider selection of accommodations on the eastern shore of Lake Shinji, some 30 km (18 mi) away from Izumo.
