Had never heard of Hearn before and therefore found the visit extremely informative. Our group of Ireland rugby supporters had received a civic reception the day before because the town very much associate themselves with Ireland because of Hearn. The visit helped explain his influence.

Nice museum and former residence Lafcadio Hearn. I've read one of his books years ago and was interested to vist this author's former home and the museum next to it. Charming small home with a nice traditional Japanese garden and a very nice museum with small A/V room where you can watch a short film on this author. Worth a visit if in Matsue.
