Overview of your Sakaiminato tour:

I'll show you around Matsue, the beautiful and nostalgic city, where I was born and lived in several times in my life. In the old landscape you might feel you are traveling to the time 400 years ago. Out of 200 castle in Japan, Matsue Castle is one of the only 12 original castles. I'll tell you all about its unique architectural techniques and interesting episodes in the long history. A sightseeing boat tour around the castle is greatly recommended. I myself enjoy it from season to season. (Note that if a boat shouln't be secured, we visit a castle related shrine and a temple. ) Besides the historical landscape, I'll share rich inheritances we received from the castle lords. Our distinctive tea culture is one of them. You will be having excellent matcha green tea with original Japanese confectionery at the old tea house designed by a feudal lord of Matsue. I can customize your tour according to your interests.
