  • 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.

  • We recommend going through the island to tourism drive to go to Matsue from Yonago. The route ran from Yonago to sakaiminato, turn the ties on the bridge Enoshima, and daikon island. Drive in the sense of running in the Mediterranean than anything else, a sense of excitement.

  • To drive in the direction of sakaiminato from Matsue would close pass this radish island in the Mediterranean. Winding through the Lake Road, on a clear day views, comfortable. The Peony is famous for this island, there was some Peony Garden. Little bridges out in the direction of sakaiminato is betta step slope became a topic in front of a bridge.
