Matsue – The vibrant hues of umbrellas have painted Matsue’s rainy season in a picturesque display that will continue to captivate until the end of July. Aptly titled “The Matsue Umbrellas’ Sky,” this captivating event embodies the essence of Matsue as a city harmonizing with raindrops.
A stunning array of 140 umbrellas, adorned with a spectrum of six enchanting colours, grace the interior of Matsue Terrsa, a prominent landmark located just steps away from the station. Spearheaded by the Matsue Tourist Association, this exhibition is brought to life with the invaluable support of Matsue Women’s High School, creating a mesmerizing spectacle that showcases Matsue’s distinctive charm.
