     Lined up in one corner of the north side of the moat surrounding the castle of Lafcadio Hearn's former residence and Memorial Hall, was built. Enter the Wu House style blends in the streets of this former residence and Memorial Hall, gate. Is Japanese-style summer house inside the Memorial here was modern interiors, such as the inside of a building. Memorial Hall is on the second floor until the mementos of Lafcadio Hearn, article and photographs had been exhibited.

    I think for the fans of the Yakumo, very attractive places. Was impressed with children who don't know is the author of this story. It was a place where you can feel the atmosphere of a castle town Matsue Castle, warm climate and a very good old Japan.

    Memorial on the writer Lafcadio Hearn who has particularly well understood and assimilated Japanese culture, he has translated many Japanese folktales and allowed this section to continue and take a new boom. A great traveller and a man of the world, who by his openness helped to create bridges between the East and the West.

    Koizumi Yakumo Memorial Museum in Lafcadio Hearn, Lafcadio Hearn's eventful life to know. Sophisticated exhibits and visuals were elaborate. Just renewed last year and the was not just typical for this kind of "Memorial". Entrance fee is 400 Yen. Well, so far as the other.

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.
