Matsue Vogel park is a hidden bird sanctuary, located in the northern banks of Lake Shinji in Shimane. The aviary is home to different species of birds, mostly tropical ones like toucans, turacos, hornbills and ibises. You may also encounter rare and exotic birds there.
Aside from interacting with your winged friends, the park's thousands of flowers, dominated by begonia and fuschia in the greenhouses blooming all-year round, are also admired by visitors. The park is mostly covered by a roof, so everyone can enjoy it in any season.
