Description

In this tour you can touch with Ancient Izumo. Dedicated to the Shinto god of marriage, Okuninushi-no-mikoto, Izumo Taisha Grand Shrine is one of the oldest and most sacred shrines in Japan. The inner shrine is constructed in the Taisha-zukuri style, Japan's oldest form of shrine architecture, and has been designated a national treasure. Each year during the 10th month of the lunar calendar, the gods from throughout Japan congregate at Izumo Taisha for their annual meeting. The Shimenawa Rope that hangs at the shrine is the largest in Japan, weighing an impressive 5 tons. You will go to Silver Mine World Heritage Center and you will get to know the history of the Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine and its composition as well as learn from the explanations of mining technology accompanying the exhibited materials; excavated items, replica models, and video footage.

After enjoying the local food at the restaurant, we go back to the pier.
