On our way home from Matsue, we stopped in Yasugi Station and took the free shuttle bus to see the Adachi Museum of Art. The museum is also home to a garden heralded as the most beautiful garden in Japan. The garden is extremely beautiful but we were only allowed to view the garden through windows because walking through it... More

Our main reason for visiting Shimane Prefecture was to visit this art museum. We took the train from Kyoto via Okayama on our way to Matsue and stopped off at at Yasugi. From the railway station we took the free shuttle bus out to the museum. At first glance I was disappointed, not what I expected at all. However, once... More

No need to say how fantastic this garden and museum is ... it's been ranked as number for the past 11 years, for a very good reason. The tea shop inside is worth a visit, if you want to spend a moment relaxing, enjoying the beautiful garden and have a cup of tea or coffee. It was a big pot... More

Give yourself time to really explore at your leisure, if you can. There is a lot to see! Not only the gardens, but all the many, many art exhibits. Also, the restaurant is simply EXCELLENT. And be prepared to spend some money in the gift shop. You will want to bring something home.

We spent hours admiring the gardens, from all angles. We even paid 1000 Y per person to drink coffee in a cafe with a garden view. We traveled by train/museum shuttle bus from our base in Matsue. Highly, highly recommended.

We visited on a bus tour and totally enjoyed every minute we were there.. The gardens and the views past the gardens were unbelievable. The art work were also terrific, however was not needed as the views from the huge glass windows was art in its self. It was very busy but it apparently is this way most of the... More

A very busy place but the gardens are just immaculate with superb mountains in the background. The art didn't really do a lot for me and is very spread out. The best art were the windows that looked into the garden, great place to sit and relax if there were a few less people!

This garden truly lives up to its reputation as the most beautiful garden in Japan. Everything is perfectly trimmed and arranged in vibrant colours and eloquent lines. The entrance fee is VERY high but I was told it was expensive to maintain the garden in such pristine condition around the year. I went on a rainy day too, which was... More
