Visit Shinji Lake, an impressive natural feature surrounded by plenty of attractions. The scenery of the lake and surrounding areas can be explored by land or water, with a number of cruise companies offering trips out onto the lake. With a circumference of 47 km (29 mi), the lake represents the seventh largest body of water in the country. A brackish lake where freshwater and saltwater blend together, the lake supports a diverse number of aquatic species, including whitebait, sea bass, eels, and shijimi shellfish. Head to one of the lakeside seafood restaurants to sample dishes made with what are commonly known as the "seven delicacies of Shinji-ko." Put Shinji Lake into our Shimane Prefecture day trip website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
Shinji Lake Reviews
松江滞在4泊5日の4日目、なかなか良いタイミングが無く夕日の写真が取れていなかった。やっと天気もよく、夕食をお店にお願いし1時間遅らせて貰い撮ることが出来た。袖師地蔵と夕日、嫁ヶ島と夕日とじっくりと堪能した。皆さんも予約をしたからといって諦めることなく、良いタイミングに出会ったらお店にお願いして、夕日を楽しんでください。 more »On the fourth day of my stay at Matsue, I couldn't take a picture of the sunset without a good timing. The weather was finally fine, so I asked the shop for dinner and was able to take a picture of it for an hour late. I enjoyed the setting sun and the sodoshi jizo, the sinugashima and the sunset carefully. Don't give up just because you made a reservation, ask the shop if you come across the right time and enjoy the sunset.
早朝から昼にかけて、JRにて松江から出雲市まで南岸沿いに、一畑電車にて出雲市駅から北岸を廻りしんじ湖温泉駅までと、ほぼ一周しました。電車の便も良く、もちろん瀬戸内並みの優雅な湖面も美しくお勧めコースです。 more »From early morning to noon, we went from Matsue to Izumo City in JR, and almost all the way from Izumo City Station to The North Bank by Ichibata Station to The Lake Hot Spring Station. The train service is good, and of course, the elegant lake surface of the Setouchi level is beautifully recommended course.
Shirakata Park from the bride to the island sunset is very beautiful scene is!! ️
When you move in Lake Shinji from Sunrise Izumo train and car saw Shinji Lake from the opposite bank. Spacious, tranquil lake. From Sunrise Izumo Shinji Lake is very good.
