Popularly called “Water City”, Matsue stands by the sea, where Nakaumi lagoon and Lake Shinji meet. Lake Shinji is blessed with fresh seafood such as fresh-water clams and glassfish. It is known as a sunset spot because of its breathtaking landscape. Matsue Castle is the symbol of Matsue, and there are sightseeing boats that cruise around its moat and local rivers, offering visitors aboard the scene of an elegant riverfront city. Matsue has also developed a very rich tea ceremony and confectionary culture. You can experience the tea ceremony culture with traditional cakes.
