Matsushima-machi

3.1
Matsushima-machi has long enjoyed a reputation for its natural scenery: back in the 17th century, scholar Hayashi Gaho listed its bay as one of the Three Views of Japan. That list still holds weight in modern Japanese society, and the view hasn't lost its impact, either. Here, forested limestone islets lie artfully arranged across the water, left largely unblemished by development. Most itineraries in Matsushima-machi will also include a trip to its storied temple, one of the most famous and historic Zen temples in the region. Matsushima-machi is in Miyagi-gun.
