Miho Shrine

Miho Shrine enshrining Ebisu, the Japanese god of fishermen and luck, has glorified and worshiped as a deity protecting the antient country of Izumo between East and West, as well as Izumo Taisha Grand Shrine located in the west of the Shimane Peninsula. Mihonoseki, a port town which used to flourish as a distribution center of the west-bound route of the Kitamae-bune (northern-bound ships carrying products from the Edo period to the Meiji era), still reserves the old townscape and cobblestones in those days, and attracts visitors every day.
