The Izumo Taisha Grand Shrine is one of the most important and oldest shrines of Japan. It is dedicated to love, so many young girls travel there to pray for a good relationship or marriage or for finding a boyfriend. In 2013 it is god's 60-year relocation year, so at the moment when I visited it was really crowded. But usually it is a quiet place. The main building complex of the shrin is maintained every 60. year, so it is really rare to see the relocating of the buildings. A special sight is the huge rice straw rope on one of the main buildings.
My recommendation is to buy one of the lovely lucky charms, because they have some special charms for love, which are said to have a positive effect on your love life.
Around the shrine you can see the beautiful nature and a mountainous landscape. It is also next to a beach. Therefore it is a good place to relax and to meditate in a special atmosphere.
