Photos: Matsue in Shimane Prefecture

In Japan, there are still many beautiful places that are not well known to overseas guests. Among them, Matsue, which is located on the Sea of Japan side in the western part of Honshu, has a very high reputation among the guests who actually went there. Matsue is an old city that retains many traditional Japanese events and customs. The castle tower that was built in the Edo period has been left in Matsue Castle and is designated as a national treasure. I recommend adding this wonderful city to your itinerary.

Photos: Shimane Prefecture -A place where old Japan remains

In the west corner of Honshu Island, there is a land called Shimane, where old Japanese lifestyle and culture are preserved. Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904), a writer from Europe, was fascinated by Shimane and wrote many stories about the land. There are no Shinkansen or big theme parks in Shimane. Nevertheless, Shimane still has a mysterious power to heal guests' hearts.
