Inasa Beach, Izumo

(170+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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.

  • 弁天島に夕日がきれいに見えます。 さらさらの白浜。駐車場は目の前。 出雲大社に行く前に是非。 砂を持って出雲大社に行くと御砂と取りかえてもらえます。 If you decide to go izumo taisha,please go this beach before it.you take some sand to taisha and they will change it to clear...  more »
  • Inasa Beach, highway 431, the current "AKAN country roads" is a generic term in the area faced the Sea Beach.

Previously as had Benten Island, ago beating wave, but in recent years there accumulated sand and able to walk. Inasa has been selected as Nagisa Japan top 100 beach is indeed no bathers this time around. But as a tourist destination name value is high, time is often apart from tourists. Nearest bus stop name is from 4/1 "inasa Beach" from "inasa Beach" to and changed. Recommended, although it is a place you can visit, regardless of means of transportation and parking is still from Izumo Taisha Shrine "walking" I think. It is about 20-30 minutes and get on the bus is a 5-minute walk. I wait for the bus, so walking okuni. Place to immerse yourself in the world of the myth of the inasa beach is fun, but still not high, is hard to understand, so votive mountain by using the observation deck will be more interesting to see the connection, go to the beach in inasa. Can you imagine what has been done during the conveyance of the land on the beach in inasa just 3 kilometres, but severe or sense of really wants to though.

  • Izumo Taisha Shrine 1 km where inasa Beach especially Benten island is famous for, is often brought up pictures. Parking spaces there are maybe 10 units. And Benten Island beach and so did not lead once, but within walking distance. It is a sunny atmosphere, Sandy. I'm from Izumo Taisha Shrine is about 1 km in a straight line, so you want to visit. I did rent a car so quickly that I noticed between the.
