Matsue is the largest city in Shimane Prefecture.

Matsue is the largest city in Shimane Prefecture. It lies to the east of Lake Shinji and to the west of Lake Nakaumi. Surrounded by these lakes, the Ohashi River that connects the two lakes, and Horikawa (moats) around Matsue Castle, Matsue is popularly called "Water Town." It retains the atmosphere of the old castle town, where, among other things, you can experience tea ceremony culture, including delicious traditional cakes.
