Getting Here and Around in Izumo Taisha


Getting Here and Around

The shrine is most easily seen on a day trip from Matsue, and the easiest way is to go from Matsue Shinji-ko Onsen Station. Buses run often between it and Matsue Station for ¥200. It takes one hour on the Ichibata Dentetsu (electric railway; ¥790) from Matsue Shinji-ko Onsen Station. After about 50 minutes you'll need to change trains at Kawato Station for the final 10-minute leg to Izumo Taisha-mae Station. You can also get there by taking the JR train from Matsue Station to JR Izumo Station, then transferring to the Ichibata Bus for a 30-minute ride, ¥490, to the Izumo Taisha Seimon stop.
