  • Gohonmatsu Park
    Leisure / Hobbies
    Shimane Matsue-shi Mihonosekicho Mihonoseki
    This park is on a moderately high 100-130 meter above sea level park. The name comes from five pine trees that were once used as landmarks for ships. The current pines are the third generation of trees here. One of the trees was cut down by order of the domain lord, and this became the basis for the folk song Seki no Gohonmatsu (The barrier of five pine trees). There is a region planted with about 5,000 azaleas, making this one of the prefecture's leading such spots. The blooming season most years is from late April through early May. The azaleas in full bloom against the backdrop of Miho bay to the south, Yumigahama beach, and Nakaumi lake is a sight to behold.

Shimane Areas


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.
