Matsue Castle (Matsue City)
Shimane's Four Seasons
Endowed with a true abundance of nature, Shimane's expression
changes gracefully with the seasons.
In spring, cherry blossoms, azaleas and tulips are in full
bloom, and in summer the lush green mountains and blue sea
captivate those who visit. Autumn's changing colors bestow
a profound peace on the mountains, and winter covers the same
peaks in a white blanket of snow, while cheers of ski-goers
can be heard from the slopes.
