The Honozan Park was completed in 1955, and it overlooks the streets of the city of Taishamachi and the Inasanohama Beach that are mentioned in mythical legends. Whether it be during sunny daytime or sunset, this park is known for its beautiful scenery, and visitors can access it by car as well as on foot. The name “Honozan”, or mountain of divine dedication, originates from a pilgrim called “Kaikokuhijiri” who buried containers with 66 Buddhist scriptures around the country in the Middle Ages. On the hillside, there is the “Okuni” tower that honors Izumono Okuni, a female entertainer who was active in the Azuchi-Momoyama period. At the summit, 75 meters above sea level, there is the "Izumo Teono” shrine that worships “Taokihoi no Mikoto”, a deity of the crafts, and the guardian of architecture and construction, where you can get a great view of the autumn leaves during fall.
