Former Taisha Station, Izumo
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.

Former Taisha Station Reviews
仕事の空き時間を利用して、出雲大社参拝の帰りに歩いて行きました。歴史を感じさせる重厚な駅舎。ここから東京や大阪まで直通列車が出ていたんだなぁ。立ち寄る価値あります！ more »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!
旧大社駅の存在は知っていましたが、立寄る予定はありませんでした。出雲大社から広島へ向かう途中に丁度立地していたため、急きょ立寄ることとしましたが、正解でした。 駅舎に年代を感じ、当時の混雑ぶりも想像でき、良かったと思います。 more »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.
Well renovated old JR station. Be ready to get lost in time...
Beautiful building but just looking, there are nothing to do
