Izumo Taisha (Izumo Grand Shrine)
A Shinto shrine of unknown age, but first recorded in the 8th century, is in Izumo City in Shimane Prefecture, north of Okayama. It is designated a National Treasure of Japan and is one of the most important Shinto shrines dedicated to the deity of marriage.
After the shrine, why not try the local Izumo soba (buckwheat noodles) found in many of the local restaurants.
