    We use the JR limited express "and muffled" is crazy waves. The cares of a reading and eating in the car (&gt; _ <). You get motion sickness. Shinji lake views from the window when it is best to go to bed, wake up was nice. Room in Lake Shinji from accommodation near Lake Shinji sunset Lake is so beautiful, is recommended. Clams in Lake Shinji and miso soup was delicious.

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.
