Lake Shinjiko
Map Panorama Collection Movie Collection
This lake lies to the west of Matsue city. It is one of the symbols of Shimane Prefecture tourism, and has been mentioned in countless writings by numerous artists, including Lafcadio Hearn. The sunset viewed from the lakeshore stretching between the Shinjiko Ohashi Bridge and Yomegashima Island is particularly breathtaking. There is a sad legend about the origins of Yomegashima (Bride Island), which emerges from the waters of Lake Shinjiko. It is said a young bride fell into the lake and drowned, and the submerged island, carrying her body, rose to the lake's surface.
