(4.2/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Visit Shinjiko Lake, an impressive natural feature surrounded by plenty of attractions.

With a circumference of 47 km (29 mi), the lake represents the seventh largest body of water in the country. A brackish lake where freshwater and saltwater blend together, the lake supports a diverse number of aquatic species, including whitebait, sea bass, eels, and shijimi shellfish.

  • Shinji Lake looking down from the observation deck of the Matsue Vogel Park is very very convenient. Opposite Tamatsukuri Onsen views overlooking the Matsue castle on the left, and see the fantastic Angel steps depending on the weather, it's beautiful. Eel Lake Shinji is recommended to return popular with the locals, you want to see is full of lunch. Prostration is sharper than usual much more customers so photos should refer to

  • I think in talking about the city of Matsue Shinji Lake is one of the indispensable. Sunset was amazing and so was looking forward to, but unfortunately was cloudy. But also looking at how much would never get bored. There were swans swim gracefully in front of. Had the pleasure of seeing the Sun when it comes to the next.

  • I think Lake has seen from the Hill, as seen from near the surface of the water. Here the Shinji Lake is seen from is from route 9, from 1 field railway, both closer to the surface of the water. Sunset, the sky is beautiful, if small on the surface of the water, you can take good pictures with the sunset reflected on the surface of the water, the sunset was beautiful, empty small take.
