Serene, heart-calming spot, which would be memorable to any holiday maker regardless of his/her faith. A shrine founded thousands of years ago to worship various Gods who are said to have built the country Japan, according to what is described in Mythology 古事記 and 日本書紀 along w/nearby shrines in the suburbs of Matsue City, e.g., Yaegaki 八重垣 and Izumo 出雲 Grand Shrine, which are very popular especially among young girls because of these shrines' Match-Making status. Since the public transportation to Kumano Grand Shrine is quite limited - no Grab or Uber available as far as I've tried - prior planning is highly recommended, including the public mini-bus schedule from the gate of the Shrine (only hourly) to the closest & more frequently served bus terminal "Yakumo 八雲" back to the center of Matsue City, but even in case there is no conveniently connecting mini-bus, walking from Yakumo Terminal to Kumano Grand Shrine covering 6km would provide a pleasant excursion opportunity for anybody who wish to experience a countryside JPN, especially during Mar - Oct when it is not that harshly cold.
It is very quiet here. There are some koyfishes that you can feed, it is very icy for small children.
