Mount Izumo・出雲山

出雲山

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.

 その昔、出雲の大国主命(おおくにぬしのみこと)の娘である下照姫命は、出雲から船でこの地にお着きになり、倭文神社境内に定住。命は故郷をしのび、この高台に歩みを進めては遠く出雲を望まれたそうです。この姿を見た人々は、いつしか出雲山と呼ぶようになりました。現在は、展望台として整備されています。
