  • Lakeline, visited by the husband and wife. Feeling, located at the entrance of Raiden with Bill stone and flagstone and as expected went into a small clean, a bit desolate. Comments as each historical was very respectable ones such as the image of each family crypt and ohgame. May, however, due to recent heavy rains or earthen wall collapsed, feels toward a full-fledged recovery, and feel many years in an interim deal is covered with a plastic sheet, 5th generation family cemetery became off-limits to the crumbling cliffs next to the fallen, prop attached to the gate, imminent, some not stop a leak in the roof tiles of the storehouse, or to experience the atmosphere of the long-awaited, still takes care thought.

  • Worth a little detour. The building is quite small but there's a wonderful garden to it. All along the touristbus line, so you just have to get off to enjoy the quiet and the shrines.  more »

  • I loved how there were hardly any people, so you can fully appreciate the temple structures and grounds. The giant turtle is a must-see. Very unusual and noble looking.
  • This is yet another beautiful temple and it's close to Matsue Castle.
  • Location of Lafcadio Hearn's Kwaidan, JI-turtle in the turtle household of the Matsudaira family Temple. Ohgame was the size of the image as. The hydrangea flowers, nature is rich in good location. But because this season (mid-July) or bug anyway. Insects without so much a lot better I think.

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.
