Inasa Beach / Bentenjima (Benten Island)

It takes approximately 13 mins from Izumo Taisha Shrine on foot, and the beautiful Inasa Beach has been selected as one of the top 100 beaches in Japan and is designated as a Japan heritage site.

Bentenjima (Benten Island) is a prominent symbol of Inasa Beach and recognized as a sacred place famous for the mythology of Kuni-yuzuri (transfer of the land) and Kuni-biki (land pulling).

When “Shinbutsu-shugo,” the fusion of Shinto and Buddhism, happened, it enshrined “Benzaiten,” widely worshiped as a goddess of entertainment and economic fortune.

However, since the Meiji period, “Toyotamahiko no Mikoto” has been enshrined.

Bentenjima becomes even more beautiful during the sunset, making it a popular sunset spot for visitors.
