Seven Wonders of Lake Shinjiko
Map Panorama Collection Movie Collection
Lake Shinjiko - the symbol of Matsue, the "City of Water" - is an estuarine lake containing a mixture of salt and fresh water. The lake produces an abundance of seasonal delicacies, the most representative of which are icefish, amasagi, perch, carp, fresh water shrimps, freshwater clams, and eels. These are known as the "Seven Wonders of Lake Shinjiko." The freshness and tastiness of the lake's fish and shellfish are due to Matsue's fortunate climate and, although dishes incorporating these delicacies appear simple, they are luxurious. These delicacies can be sampled at restaurants in central Matsue.
