Inasanohama beach in Izumo City, Shimane is located 1 kilometer west of Izumo Taisha shrine, and has been selected as one of the "100 best beaches in Japan." It is a mythical land where many Japanese legends are passed down, such as the legends "Kunimamori" and "Kunibiki." It is also where the myth of "The Hare of Inaba," or “Inaba no Shirousagi” takes place. One legend says that the gods of heaven and earth peacefully negotiated to erect the Izumo Oyashiro Shrine, and the “Byobu Iwa” cliff is said to be where the negotiation took place. Furthermore, in October, Shinto priests conduct the “Kamimukae” ceremony to welcome all of the deities in Japan. It is therefore known as one of the strongest Power Spots in Japan.
