  • See Enoshima Ohashi in mihonoseki Matsue go to street in the middle of the Mediterranean, was over the daikon island. It is my first drove this road has many times visited Matsue and Yonago. Weather was good, both sides are on the Lake very in very spectacular scenery was refreshing. So take a break on the way we pass the Enoshima Ohashi, see on television was not exaggerated.
