Inasa Beach, Izumo

4.0
#1 of 54 in Beaches in Chugoku
Wander the sands of the enchanting Inasa Beach, listed as one of the 100 best beaches in the country. Strolling the peaceful beach, you'll observe a verdant, rocky outcrop on the shoreline. Perched up there is a small shrine dedicated to Toyotamabime, the daughter of Wadazumi, the God of the Sea, who reputedly offers protection to seafarers. Consider sticking around here until the evening, when you'll get to witness an exquisite ocean sunset. Put Inasa Beach and other Izumo attractions into our Izumo online journey planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
