    Hi!  As it is a small town, transport will likely be very limited…

    Where would you like to visit in the city?  That will help find options. 🙂

    I was hoping people might have suggestions of what to do there as well. I believe it is known for crab and hon-maguro, as well as the Matsue Castle. Thanks!

    Hi,

    It seems that the cruise stops at Showa south warf and the only way to get to public transportation is via a complemtentary shuttle bus… if you cannot get on that you cannot get to any other attractions.  Can you ask the cruise if it is accessible?

    Getting from the port to Matsue Castle by car is about 45 min, but over 2 hours by train.

    The Grand Shrine at Izumo is 1.5 hrs by car, or a little over 3 hours by train.

    The Adachi Museum of Art is also recommended but can only be reached by a shuttle bus from the station – but it isn’t accessible.

    It might be best to use a wheelchair taxi: http://www.orangeroad.co.jp/service/taxi/index.html

    If you want to try the train, you will likely still need to use the cruise’s shuttle bus.  So, your first step would be to ask about the shuttle bus accessibility…

    Also, here is a link to the port and they have two English maps.  It looks like there may be some stuff to see without going to far from port:
