  • With plenty of explanation and Exposition dedicated to Lafcadio Hearn. 1 F is a small exhibit of who is quite studied, can be enjoyed. A little further is the former residence of Lafcadio Hearn.

  • The Museum Lafcadio Hearn, entirely restored in 2016 and headed by a descendant of the writer, is a marvel. For those who know the work of Hearn (who moved to Japan in 1890, and died there in 1904 after having married the daughter of a samurai and a family of four children with her) he brings quantity of new items and reserve surprises and valuable information. For those who have not read this beloved writer of the Japanese that he did know the country and culture to the world, it's an opportunity to discover an extraordinary man and his books which are no less. His stay of a little more than a year to Matsue was the happiest period of the life of this man of exception naturalized Japanese and literally revered today still to Matsue and in the whole country.

  •  Recalled from Lafcadio Hearn's "ear law one" or of admission was, and also do not know what kind of person as a ghost story. Not only writers of Japan, impacting on the world famous people (Einstein, Bernard Shaw, etc.) rice was informed of my ignorance again, knowing that the hour was.

  • Well done.
  • Small but typical ancient Japanese house with tatami, garden. Vert peaceful.
  • Quite interesting
  • 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.
