What is a Ryokan? Ryokans are the best way to experience Japanese culture and enjoy the true comforts of Japanese hospitality and service.
Hot springs have a very long history in Japan, and they are an intimate part of Japanese culture. There are over 3,000 "onsen" ,or hot springs, in Japan. Many can be found at the ryokans available on Japanese Guest Houses.
Shimane Prefecture is located along the Sea of Japan coastline in western Japan. The capital city is Matsue and the city is known for Matsue Castle (completed in 1611), one of the few original castles in Japan. North of Matsue Castle lies a row of former samurai residences which are open to the public. Also located among the samurai residences is the former home of Lafcadio Hearn who was one of the first authors to introduce Japan to the Western world. Another one of Shimane Prefecture's historical attractions is Izumo Taisha, Japan's oldest shrine. Izumo Taisha is considered Japan's second most important shrine after Ise Jingu. Shimane Prefecture also boasts over 50 hot springs for visitors to enjoy. For more information about Matsue please see our travel content partner Japan-Guide
