Former Taisha Station, Izumo

4.3
The last remaining station of the now defunct JR Taisha line, Former Taisha Station represents a fine example of Imperial Crown-style architecture. Constructed in 1924, this cultural treasure is one of only three remaining stations preserved from this period, utilizing wood and traditionally curved, tiled roofs, topped by ridgepole ornaments in a fashion distinct to the country. Exploring the station will give you a sense of how it functioned all those years ago, with mannequin displays of original uniforms, photographs, and even a preserved steam locomotive sitting at the platform. Bring along your camera to capture this typical early 20th-century terminal.

  • I took advantage of my spare time at work and walked back to Izumo Taisha Shrine. A heavy station building that lets you feel the history. There was a direct train from here to Tokyo and Osaka. It's worth a stop by!

  • I knew the old Taisha Station existed, but I didn't plan to stop by. It was located on the way from Izumo Taisha to Hiroshima, so I decided to stop by in a hurry, but it was correct. I could feel the age in the station building and imagine how crowded it was at that time, and i think it was good.
