Who says everything is small in Japan. This shire is one of the biggest in the country. A must see if you are in the Matsue/Izumo area.

Historically significant, ancient shrine with mysterious atmosphere

This is the oldest example of Taisha-tsukuri style shrine architecture in Japan, dedicated to the deity Izanami-no-Mikoto, a sort of mother-figure to the land of Japan. Tucked away on a hill outside of the city area, this is the kind of place to go to if you want a taste of the ancient roots of Shintoism rather than the tourist-filled, attraction-driven shrines. In addition to sake, they also serve rice to new years visitors. Located very close to Yakumo Tatsu Fudoki no Oka, a place that people who enjoy ancient history would appreciate. You can rent bikes to tour the area.
