Matsue city is the capital of Shimane prefecture. This western part of the island of Honshu is a little less industrialized than the areas around Tokyo. Here you’ll find tall apartment blocks and bullet trains, but you’ll also find rice paddies and Shinto shrines centuries old. The past has been kept alive in Shimane. Traditional Japanese values and culture has remained untouched by outside influence, but that doesn’t mean they don’t welcome foreigners. The locals are polite and reserved, everywhere is very safe and everyone likes to unwind with classic pastimes like going for relaxing walks or bathing in an onsen. The local hot-spring baths are highly prized among locals and are something everyone should try out at least once. To help you try it out we’ve made a list of the 10 most tourist friendly onsen ryokan in Matue, Shimane prefecture.
