Shinji Lake, Shimane Prefecture

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
