Taisha Goen-Hiroba station is a road-side station located along the river, half way between Izumo Taisha-mae Station and the Former Taisha Station. This building with a Japanese Shinto-style architecture has a fan and spear on top of the roof. This symbol of good luck makes the building easy to spot from a distance. Inside the building, there are various materials related to the culture and traditional arts of the city of Taisha-cho and the traditional event "Kitcho Shinji", which is during the first three days of January. In Kitcho Hall, there are many attractions such as an installation of light and sound that allows you to experience a dialogue with the deities, a tourism information center, rest areas, hot spring stands, and a bicycle rental facility. At the entrance of the building there is a stamp of "Shimanekko", which is a local mascot of Shimane prefecture.
