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.
