Location Information

215 N Kukui St.
Honolulu, HI 96817

Izumo Taishakyo Mission of Hawaii, Established in 1906.  The Izumo Taishakyo Mission of Hawaii (also known as “Hawaii Izumo Taisha”) is a branch of Izumo Taisha Grand Shinto Shrine (Izumo Oyashiro) of Izumo City, Shimane Prefecture, Japan. The religious community is also known as “Izumo Oyashirokyo.” Many old structures at the Main Shrine are designated as historic monuments by the Japanese government. Archeologists agree that the original remains of Izumo Taisha can be traced back to the 3rd or 4th Century A.D.

There are approximately 300 Shrine branches throughout Japan. One of the primary events of the Shrine is to conduct pilgrimages to the Main Shrine, called “Homecoming” or “Okunigaeri.” Hawaii Izumo Taisha also conducts a pilgrimage group to “Okunigaeri” occasionally.
