"Any town you visit in Japan if..." Matsue Favorite Tip by GenkiMac

Matsue General: 5 reviews and 4 photos


Favorite thing: Any town you visit in Japan if it has a castle it has a place to see the view of the city. The castles all have the top floor as a 360 degree viewing room and even if some of the castles are not very interesting if you like views then it is most proabably worth the walk. Matsue is the 2nd best castle in Japan in my opinion(after Himeji) and is well worth seeing. We even had a guide approach us who wanted to practise her English and told us everything there was to know about the castle for free.

Fondest memory: Being in Matsue with my parents when they came out to visit. We enjoyed wandering around the city, both the old parts around the castle and the new.
This photo was taken from the top of the castle.
