Masuda is located at the western end of Honshu, the mainland of Japan. The city is proud of the Takatsu River, which is one of the clearest rivers in Japan. Forests cover 89% of its land area, and the city's mountainous area is a quasi-national park. The Takatsu and Masuda Rivers meet at the Sea of Japan, forming a vast and fertile plain. Its coastline faces the Japan Sea, and is famous as one of the most scenic sunset view spots in Japan. The city's land area is 733.19 m2, which is around 10% of the total land area of Shimane.

Masuda is proud of its wide variety of agricultural products, such as tomato, melon, grape, yuzu (Japanese citrus), and wasabi. Besides the quality seafood harvested from the Japan Sea, extra-large hamaguri clam (more than 7 cm in width), which is a popular local delicacy can be found in the mouth of the Takatsu River.

The history of the city goes back to the first millennium, but Masuda's townscape substantially formed in the medieval era, which makes it unique among neighbouring towns. Mampuku-ji Temple, built in the medieval era, is home to the "stone garden" designed by Sesshu, the notable artist of that time. Sesshu created another unique Japanese garden and an ink painting, which are also designated as National Treasures, along with the Mampuku-ji Temple.

Masuda also has an outdoor public bath, which faces the sea, and hot springs which are surrounded by mountains. The hot springs are diverse: they include alkaline hot springs, and radon springs. Both help to reduce stress and muscle aches. Grand Toit, the prefectural arts centre which combines a theatre, a museum, and a restaurant, is located in the middle of the town. The award-winning magnificent architecture, which is covered with traditional Sekishu roof tiles, is also a source of local pride.
