Matsue

3.9
Matsue sits on the banks of the Ohashi-gawa river, channeling its waters through a series of canals and rivers that add much to the scenic aspect of the urban area. Pleasure boats glide along the waters, offering views of the main attractions in Matsue as they go, including the old and storied castle around which the city has developed, and a number of old Shinto shrines. The river connects two large lakes that sit either side of the city, further adding to Matsue's reputation as a scenic town by the water. Matsue is in Shimane Prefecture. Before you visit Japan, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.
