Sunset over Lake Shinji

sunset in LakeShinji



Lake Shinji, the 7th largest lake in Japan is no wonder Shimane’s scenic icon. Its brackish water is the home to a variety of fishes and shellfishes. Among them, small black shell, Shijimi is widely known as the representative of Shimane’s delicacies.

What makes Lake Shinji particularly famous should be its sunset view. There are many viewing spots around the lake, including the grounds of the Shimane Art Museum, or along lakefront promenade. You can also enjoy the view from the lake on a pleasure boat, Hakucho (“swan” in Japanese) for sunset cruise.

There are no words to express how breathtaking the sunset view is.
