    Nekkoya is an izakaya (Japanese-style pub) where guests can enjoy seasonal food from the San'in region including Lake Shinji. It is located along Ohashi River, about three minutes on foot from the north exit of Matsue Station. The warm, wooden interior of the pub with its spacious atrium type space has a very relaxed feel. The well loved and creative food on offer is a blend of both Western and Japanese tastes such as their deisui-shijimi, clams from Lake Shinji bathed in sake, and their dogi-no-ichiyaboshi (white fish salted and dried overnight), as well as their rich and juicy foie gras chawanmushi (steamed egg custard and other ingredients). Nekkoya is a relaxing place to have a meal while looking out over the river.

Shimane Areas

around-area-map

What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan’s oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
