  • Floating on the sea, the island name has changed and the radish won't read. I'm also the atmosphere of the island in a very gentle relaxing mood is situated, this island is a Island born by volcanic activity. Its vestiges are obsolete as a lava tube cave (one is off-limits, another Nite prior permission required is). It is also a drive course Enoshima bridge there is a beautiful garden of yushi Park, made famous by solid stepping Hill, a small but quite many attractions and expansive sea views. It is very recommended if out of Matsue in sakaiminato and Yonago.

Where to stay in Matsue

With its canals, rivers, and lakes central to the look and everyday life of Matsue, many visitors arrive wanting a view of the water. And they're certainly in luck, because the city has placed its primary accommodations up close to the waterways. Traditional "ryokan" (guesthouses) with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) sit to the north of the river, while a good number of basic hotels lie to the south. Look around the countryside to the south for clusters of retreats in scenic areas, including traditional ryokan and modern hotels with onsite onsen.
