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.

  • Completion of 0/1924 and 0/1990 by large railways discontinued discontinued. Beautiful Japanese wooden architecture allows now to keep tradition of Izumo-Taisha Shrine Gate Station and stately. Had been left in etc. at that time inside the chandelier, and recalled bygone days. That seems currently underutilized too, sorry.

  • Station I traditionally like to visit once. X & did not know had been abandoned railway station. Appearance of course decorated with Patrick station during the Japanese-style chandelier is great. Discontinued at that time fares and timetable was left intact. That he was once a direct train from Tokyo was discontinued when all Izumo city remained. The atmosphere was out in the home, so trains would come at any moment. Many people visit and was very quiet.
