Religious Site
Whichever part of the crimson structure of Hinomisaki Shrine you look at, you'll find ornate carvings of various birds, dragons, and other traditionally symbolic creatures. Designated a nationally important cultural property, the shrine is estimated to have been established sometime between the sixth and eighth centuries, with its current structures having been rebuilt in the 17th century. Look out for the sacred land mass 100 m (328 ft) off shore, which serves as a breeding site for black-tailed gulls and has been designated a natural monument. You can also see the tallest masonry lighthouse in the country, standing around 0.5 km (0.3 mi) from the site.

  • Izumo Taisha Shrine runs about 20 minutes by car. Go along the coast road, little appear in your village and descend into the road in the mountains. It is very splendid shrine. I felt strongly. It was kinda scary, but it was cloudy. Move to send more, try us.

  • Izumo's first trip was from hinomisaki shrine (^-^) /. Just in the morning you could hear gently from under the shrine is our priest chants because at the time it was (^-^). Buses not so much extra time hinomisaki eating zenzai store near see a lighthouse, at the time, I think. So often just fly in the locality (fishing port), however, unlike the city must endure there is (^ ^;).
