Mount Izumo・出雲山

2014.10.28 (Tue)


Once upon a time, Princess Shitateru, the daughter of Lord Okuni, traveled to Yurihama from her hometown of Izumo and came to reside within the grounds of Shitori Shrine. As time went by, she began to yearn to be back home, and would climb a nearby mountain to gaze towards Izumo in the distance. The townspeople saw this and began to call the mountain Mount Izumo. Nowadays, the area is kept as a viewing platform for people to enjoy.
