Izumo Grand Shrine

Izumo-taisha (出雲大社, "Izumo Grand Shrine") is one of the most ancient and important
Shinto shrines in Japan. No record gives the date of establishment. Located in Izumo,
Shimane Prefecture, it is home to two major festivals. It is dedicated to the god ?kuninushi
(大国主大神), famous as the Shinto deity of marriage and to Kotoamatsukami, distinguishing
heavenly kami. The shrine is believed by many to be the oldest Shinto shrine in Japan,
even predating the Ise Grand Shrine.
