Actually the reason why I finally decided to have a weekend getaway was that a friend of mine in Tokyo had been planning to visit Shimane and Tottori. So we planned this trip for a couple of months.
My husband and I went to Yonago airport to pick her up on Saturday afternoon.
Our first stop was Shoji Ueda Museum of Photography. Shoji Ueda was considered one of prominent photographers in Japan. He received Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the goverment of France in 1996. He passed away in 2000. I didn't take any pictures there as the museum was being renovated when we were visiting. To know more about this museum this is the link.
From there we headed to Matsue city in Shimane prefecture. It took as about 1 hour from Yonago to reach it. Two friends joined us for a dinner and the trip the next day.
The Sunday trip was really fun! We went to several places.
Our next visit is to another shrine. But I'll write about it in another post.
