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.

  • This is a beautiful red shrine. Located by the sea, so if you have blue sea, sky and the white clouds is perfect! There the Red corridor, so come to photography! Hinomisaki Lighthouse walk slowly 15-way seaside takes about 20 minutes and I think I had good views it's nice. Walk you can also get a car so parking there is no.

Where to stay in Izumo

Hotels in Izumo cluster around the railway station, mostly on the northern side. Get a map at the station for the location and prices of a few inexpensive ryokans and family-operated bed and breakfasts scattered around the city. A number of mid-range business establishments lie in the western part of town and south of the railway station. Capacity in the city is limited, so consider exploring the wider selection of accommodations on the eastern shore of Lake Shinji, some 30 km (18 mi) away from Izumo.
