Izumo Taisha Trivia

Izumo Taisha is a famous tourist spot in Shimane prefecture and is also an important shrine in Japan. It has a long history, but no one knows when it was established. 
Some ancient history records described that around 950, the shrine was the highest building in Japan, reaching approximately 48 meters. Now you can see a tall national flag pole in the shrine. It is 47 meters high, almost as the same height as the ancient building. It's just a trivia.
