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.
