Inasa Beach, Izumo

3.8
#1 of 43 in Beaches in Chugoku
Wander the sands of the enchanting Inasa Beach, listed as one of the 100 best beaches in the country. Strolling the peaceful beach, you'll observe a verdant, rocky outcrop on the shoreline. Perched up there is a small shrine dedicated to Toyotamabime, the daughter of Wadazumi, the God of the Sea, who reputedly offers protection to seafarers. Consider sticking around here until the evening, when you'll get to witness an exquisite ocean sunset.

  • Walked from the shrine, but not so far. It takes about 15 minutes. Breast Ginkgo biloba or rough eight shrines along the way? Exploring if you have time, there is. Benten Island arrives on the beach and immediately enters the eye is strange. It was an island? Is a large rock? But the very divine. The day was cloudy, also returned to the shrine is very calm and very fresh wave, but it was empty.

  • In the day visited a fine and pleasant calm, peacefully visited from the sandy beach. Free parking is available. So that evening at the fantastic scenery.

  • I'd take Izumo-Taisha Shrine and Museum and a little bit tired from walking, should further afield but still so far. Less than 15 minutes walk from Izumo-Taisha Shrine? Shrine of Izumo no okuni's grave in the middle and go walk will open views. And saying its divineness when I arrived at the coast! I think one of universal's imagined "sacred" and see this scenery is surely times have changed. Place images, not with all five senses. We recommend you to taste both between the shrine and the inasa Beach located in Izumo Soba shops, so Izumo.

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.
