  • To much time there is no its, it a is recommended when. As the look of the building itself is nice, but sunset spot is famous. Lobby of the Museum of fine arts is helpful in Lake Shinji, who can use free of charge. Extend the opening hours of the registration lobby sunset would be.

  • 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.
  • The Museum is on the shores of Lake Shinji, you can enjoy the beautiful sunset. Kikutake's design. That's only for sale to sunset, sunset in September admission from March, closing time is 30 minutes after sunset. If the summer solstice of 19:27 and the time of sunset. Building is planned on the first floor in a two-story exhibit, has become a permanent exhibition of the collection on the second floor. Also not to be missed, fun in the Museum, but also Lake lined big three-dimensional works of public art works.

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.
