Stay at Minamikan Hotel
- In Matsue, the “City of Water”, what better place to wake up than in a room on the water’s edge, surrounded by a mix of history and nature. At Minamikan Hotel, a 130 year old ryokan nestled on the northern shore of Lake Shinji, the water views blend with an award-winning Japanese garden to provide a beautiful backdrop to the place that has hosted numerous legendary individuals. This gem is a located in the heart of the Kyomise District and is the perfect base from which to explore the Matsue Castle and the historic streets not far from the ryokan. This is on top of the impeccable service you will receive once you enter Minamikan’s doors. Stay at Minamikan Hotel Staying at Minamikan Hotel is above all, a chance to take pleasure in the scenic views available from the vast majority of the rooms in the building. If you’re looking to follow in the footsteps of great minds, though, put your name down for the Fujimura Classic Room. Beyond the beauty of this tatami room, the terrace here is where famous Japanese poet, Shimazaki Touson used to get his inspiration while visiting Matsue during the Meiji Era. In keeping with tradition, this classic does not include a private onsen bath but the ryokan’s public bath is only a few steps down the hall. Stay at Minamikan Hotel In case the taste of history and tradition from the common areas is more than enough and your appreciation for modern comfort gets the upper hand, Minamikan’s modern rooms are full of western comforts with cozy beds and sofas. They also provide plenty of Japanese touches including a pristine private onsen bath overlooking Lake Shinji, the source of the ryokan’s relaxing hot spring waters.

Nice enough hotel on the lake front (if you are fortunate enough to get a room lake side which I wasn’t) but it was extremely difficult to sort issues out as the staff speak little or no English. Now...
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.
