September cruise
What fun this was to slowly explore the canals around Matsue castle. We did the 50 minute (4km) tour - spotting birds and turtles, passing historic sights and laying flat on the boat’s tatami under the very low bridges. The recorded narration (in Hearn’s lovely Irish accent) paired with a colourful map, helped locate points of interest and best photography spots along the way. The smiley boatman even sang us a song in one of the acoustically perfect tunnels.

Good boat trip even in winter at Matsue.
松江の堀川めぐりは、屋根の下げあるボートで約50分間の楽しみがあります。お濠の周りの景色をガイドさんが紹介してくださり、途中で降りることもできます。冬もこたつがあり、暖かく楽しめます。おすすめです。
