Shinji Lake, Shimane Prefecture

Visit Shinji Lake, an impressive natural feature surrounded by plenty of attractions. The scenery of the lake and surrounding areas can be explored by land or water, with a number of cruise companies offering trips out onto the lake. 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. Head to one of the lakeside seafood restaurants to sample dishes made with what are commonly known as the "seven delicacies of Shinji-ko." Put Shinji Lake into our Matsue day trip website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • From the airport to Matsue little cars to run and Shinji Lake is seen on the left hand side. From the Shimane Prefecture Art Museum could watch the sunset from there, this and stop the car beside the Shinji Lake around. Ideal can feel free to stop the car, because it overlooks the entire Lake Shinji sunset view.

  • Lake Shinji sunset is famous is the morning sun is beautiful. Views from the hotel is located opposite to the sunset views from the Museum of fine arts, often accompanies Shinji Lake hot springs. Across the road in front of the hotel and about 1 km promenade along Lake Shinji. Climb from the Oyama area while enjoying the morning sun morning walking or running is really feels good!

  • The view is beautiful. It is a view especially at dusk when the best. Heart is a place to settle down. I feel sometimes forget, and want to be like that. One day, but this time one person, not two ❗
