JR Izumo-shi Station is built in the style of the nearby Izumo Taisha shrine.
The station connects to Matsue on the JR San-in Line. The station building has a small tourist information office, a convenience store and within the station complex is a supermarket, small department store and restaurants.
Izumo Station is surrounded by hotels and outside the south exit is the pleasant Ranpu-no-Yu Ekimae hot spring bath house. Just here too is the very good value Super Hotel with single rooms around 5,000 yen with breakfast.
