I'll be busy the next few weeks. Commenting will be spotty at best.

@Daryl Johnson: It's Izumo Taisha. A fascinating place.

Do you know what, I've actually been to Izumo with work, when I was based in Okayama, and of course heard of Izumo Taisha, but never visited... wasted opportunity - maybe on a return visit some day...
