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.

  • Taisha station. And I hate JR railways was running a train near Izumo Taisha. Here is a railway station on the other end. Now free as a tourist attraction. A steam locomotive at the station. Stations are stored cleanly. The number of tourists is hardly any say that off the beaten path. Hey stop by and not by car, may be tough.

  • Ask taxi driver was on the way to the shrine, I stopped by. Feel the history of classic wooden station building and platform was stored cleanly. Valuable staff can feel the excitement at the time, is now disused but at home and stop steam locomotive.

  • Visit Izumo-Taisha was the hottest day of the summer, but the trains had since visited on tour. Descend into further from 1 field station, across the bridge, and after a few moments on your left. Because now is not used as a train station, is a quiet appearance. I think that makes a pretty good. It is recommended that the visit.
