Inasa Beach, Izumo

3.8
#1 of 43 in Beaches in Chugoku
Beach Nature / Park
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.

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.
