  • Is a former JR large railways Terminal. 1 Hankyu Izumo Taisha-Mae Station and also near, not only about 1 km away. Izumo Taisha-Mae Station Mikado South (Izumo-Taisha and reverse) walking down the street, there are signs. Izumo Taisha-Mae station has been registered tangible cultural property, but this is designated as. In fact, a massive wooden station building, reminiscent of Lords, and the splendid shrine Taisha style, not what it is. It is in contrast to and supposed Western architecture in the Izumo Taisha-Mae Station with stained-glass Windows. Station was once a large number of visitors, would be in had swarmed it. Now as a tourist office functioning as. Flirting eyes at the premises at the ticket counter, the counter on eaves. It mimics the shrine's will. In addition, Western chandelier too attract the eye. I think an overall gorgeous and quaint, great as a Meiji era Western architecture. No wonder the registered nationally. In addition, longer platforms, would guess you had a line with a substantial passenger cars. Arouse such feelings, come on come on train station is.

  • Is the conservation of the original higher drama in attraction. You can understand that constantly visited shrine of Izumo-Taisha Shrine look at buildings in the photos and feel the history as well as wooden buildings. Time slip is a ticket firm and broad form.
