The Traditional Japanese Experience
Welcome to the official website of Itoan, a hostel in Izumo converted from a traditional Japanese inn built in the Shōwa period. Located just a 5 minute walk from Izumoshi Station, our hostel is loved by travellers and locals alike for being a place where they can socialize, have a drink, and make friends from around the world.
Our hostel is located just 5 minutes away from JR Izumoshi Station on foot, making it a prime location for those visiting the Izumo Taisha Grand Shrine. Converted from a ryokan built in 1945, it is the perfect opportunity for guests to experience the traditional style from that time period.
This is a place where locals from Izumo and travellers from around the world can gather!
Each room offers its own unique interior design, with decorative windows, ceilings, and various features of a traditional Japanese room. Although the building was constructed immediately following World War II, the interior has been carefully preserved and is still in pristine condition even to this day. Our hardworking staff regularly conducts cleaning duties to ensure that the hostel remains a pleasant and authentic experience.
