Must say the access is not convenient for tourists. Since it's Japanese religious place and far from main international airports in Japan, it's not touristic at all especially for the visitors from overseas, though most of Japanese would be thinking "I wanna go pray there sometime in future, at least one time in lifetime".
If you have an intrest on Japanese ancient religion "Shinto" and wanna feel a hint of it, it may worth to visit this one of greatest shrines in Japan but there is also a lot of non-famous shrines in every cities/towns.
Unlike the popular way "2 bows > 2 claps (Pray) > 1 bow" to pray at most of shrines, "2 bows > 4 claps (Pray) > 1 bow" is the way to pray here.
Recently, famous as religious power spot especially for Japanese young women, who is looking for good relationship / marriage partner.
Don't miss the big "Shimenawa" in "Kagura den" and also Japanese noodle "Soba" lunch at the soba restaurants around the shrine, which is famous in Izumo area.
