Izumo Airport is visited by many tourists as an air gateway to Shimane Prefecture. It is also known as "Izumo En-Musubi Airport" (Izumo Matchmaking Airport). In addition to regular flights to major cities including Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka and Nagoya, round trip flights to Oki Airport are available.
The Izumo Taisha (Grand Shrine) is a popular tourist spot in Shimane Prefecture. It is ideal to use a rental car when you go to the Izumo Taisha (Grand Shrine) because it is somewhat distant from the airport. There is a car rental service counter located near the domestic arrival lobby on the 1st floor. You may rent a car at this location.
The Izumo Taisha (Grand Shrine) is about 35 minutes from Izumo Airport via National Route 243 → prefectural road 23 → National Route 431. The Shimane Museum of Ancient Izumo is also a popular tourist attraction. It is located on the way to the Izumo Taisha (Grand Shrine) from the airport.
