  • Although there is no such a good idea, but I like this art museum, because of waiting for sunset, but the winter is very cold, and hid here to rest, the big sand in the area is very comfortable, and the point is that there is a row of rabbit statues outside the museum, and there is a place in the museum where you can cover the rabbit and rabbit chapters.

  • I just enjoy a sunset at here. The glass reflect s sun light, sea as well as peoples. Moreover, the curve shape of the glass makes you can see the same image if you stand on the right place. Great Design.
  • This museum is well worth a visit if you have the time.
  • Nice gallery that's worth an afternoon. It's also a good place to watch the sunset from.
  • Closing time until "after 30 minutes of sunset" (from March to September). So why is leisurely gorgeous sunsets on the Lake. Sunset on Lake Shinji Sunset Beach in Japan the change the face depending on the season, like works of art one especially fine sunset the lobby panoramic terrace overlooking the Lake and Lake people are filled with exhibition, the collection is paid including the lobby entrance to the building and It's free of Lakeshore Park. Museum of fine arts is like talking to "and you might just enjoy the evening as guests feel happy" * ˊ ᴗ ˋ *

  • 20170731 come to this Museum, Matsue was still strongly felt that the town's adults. All quiet, art and watch as delighted visitors. This place is good, we are loved in the Museum of art using non-local landmarks. I envy people who attend because there is a cheap path to full-year as the Museum of fine arts. When speaking facility too docile, there were a lot a kind person. Also take a look at wants to come. Sister facility of clothes design image of Lake Shinji, Orange winter scarf is so image at sunset. This is a cute design. Parking is too far away, and parking was limited to the front of the Museum of fine arts.

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.
