Former Taisha Station, Izumo

(4.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our international travel planner, Izumo attractions like Former Taisha Station can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Later Izumo-Taisha Shrine, came to the old station. Wooden station, railway station in seems to feel the warmth of the old station. Across from the gate at home against SL D51. A good tour of the old station and SL is free so if you have time.

  • If you're coming by bus from Izumo train station we recommend in the old shrine station bus stop. Izumo-Taisha's pretty walk. Besides the view inside the station's home is exactly in the Taisho era slipped seems. No doubt for a while decided to.
