Matsushima day trip

Matsushima is one of the prettiest coastal areas in Japan.

Just 30 minutes from Sendai, Matsushima Bay is a lovely day trip and a nice change of pace from busy Sendai City. The bay, which fortunately escaped much damage in the 2011 Tohoku Tsunami, is known in Japan as one of the country's top three ocean views. (Japan does love a list!) Dotted with over 200 islands covered with pine trees it certainly is a scenic spot and a great place for a boat trip which is easy to arrange on arrival.
