  • 這裡應該是松江市內最適合欣賞夕陽的景點,視野遼闊悠然平靜,館內或館外都可以感受到大自然每一刻變化的景色。特別一提的事「島根縣立美術館」的每日休館時間都不同,目的是為了方便讓大家能在館內觀賞夕陽,所以會選在日落後30分鐘才休館,真是貼心的好地方。  more »
  • 素聞島根美術館的夕陽非常美, 在一天的最後一站排到美術館這兒! 可惜是個多雲的傍晚,沒有夕陽,但還好有一點晚霞可供欣賞! 在湖邊漫步也是挺舒服愉快的經驗!  more »

  • Nice gallery that's worth an afternoon. It's also a good place to watch the sunset from.
  • Rooms are very nice. Seems to enjoy Lake Shinji sunset is good, but we couldn't in a matter of hours. In the afternoon sun reflecting off the Lake Shinji, may be hard to see. Morning or evening

  • It's nice and calm scenery of Lake Shinji. I think if it is fine the evening sunset is clearly visible.
