[EDIT: Just to add that I've written a guest post for Tourist In Japan about Matsue.]
It’s an introduction to the city, but very much from my experiences there. I did a little research to add a little background, but it is by no means a history of Matsue. I thought I’d mention it here on the off chance it’d interest you. It’s on Amazon only (self-published Kindle, you see).
EDIT: 14/12/2021. It's been a while and during this whole lockdown thing I've been rewriting my book. It's now got a different name: Matsue, Japan: Seven walks through seventeen centuries, because it's a little more accurate and also I figured I needed the word "Japan" in the title somewhere. So it's now almost twice as long and three times as good. Here's a link to it in the UK store.
