Matsue is an international sightseeing destination with a lot of historic atmosphere. It is home to Matsue-jo Castle, one of the 12 remaining original Japanese castles, known as a city of water, and in the evening the sun sets over Lake Shinji to cast a beautiful glow on the water surface.Located directly next to JR Matsue Station, the entrance to the city, is Shamine Matsue, the perfect one-stop shopping destination for tourists searching for souvenirs, sweets, or a meal.Of special note is Izumo soba, a regional favorite, which is known locally as warigo soba and served in three layered boxes.
