Review of Matsue Jozan Park

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/08/11 Peaceful park
The walk through Jozan Park afterwards to Shiomi Nawate street was lovely, peaceful and well sign-posted. The mossy tree roots on some of the trees were beautiful.
Reviewed:2020/08/02 Nice stroll around the caste
Enjoy a stroll before or after going to the castle.
There was a nice flower festival when I visited, and I enjoyed a relaxing break from all the walking around.
Reviewed:2019/10/12 Inviting park, nicely decorated

          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.
