Likely the oldest site of its kind in the country, Izumo Taisha Shrine also represents as one of the most important places of worship in the Shinto religion. You'll walk on extremely ancient ground when visiting the shrine, as the site dates back to at least the 8th century. Despite the temple's long history, the appearance of the main shrine only dates back to the 18th century. The main hall, renovated every few decades, last underwent a major rebuilding in 2013. Pay special attention to the straw ropes hanging over the entrance into the main section of the complex--visitors able to throw and lodge a coin in them can allegedly hope for continued good fortune.

I was surprised that there were quite a lot of people! There are a lot of places to pray, and it wanders... There are a lot of figurines of the rabbit in the site, and it is pretty. The main shrine, which is with its head, is not seen nearby, but it was seen a little from a distance. Amazing! I am satisfied to see a famous thick rope!
It's quiet big shrine and peaceful. Behind the shrine there is big forest which has lots of shrines. But those are restricted to normal people and can be accessed by priest and monks who is serving in this shrine.
Visiting the home of all Japanese Gods is unforgettable. The Shrine was grand and massive with rich historical backgrounds. Walking around the famous power spot calmed me down and left me in awe.
