Facility summary and accessibility conditions

Shinmondōri is the main entrance path to the Izumo Shrine.
There are many restaurants, cafés, and souvenir shops along the street.
Even simple strolling along this street is enjoyable.
The stone pavement from the first torii is wide and there are few bumps, but the path is a little hilly near the second torii.
Midway on the street, there’s a train of the “Dehani 50” model, which is among the oldest wooden trains, on display at an old station house of the Ichibata railways.
Nearby, there are 3 places for wheelchair loaning: Shinmondōri Omotenashi Station, Kicchōkan, and the Shimane Museum of Ancient Izumo.
There are 3 multipurpose bathrooms: at the Shinmondōri Place parking space, the Taisha Goen Place parking space, and the Enmusubi Square.
