Matsushima Bay, Matsushima-machi
(3.8/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Admire the tiny landmasses of Matsushima Bay, a coastal area known for its scenery, wealth of vantage points, and sightseeing cruises. From the mainland, four long-established viewpoints represent the most popular way of experiencing the bay; visit them all for different vistas of the offshore collection of pine covered islands. Alternatively, opt to take one of the many cruises around the bay for up-close inspection of the varying rock formations, as well as the black and red pines topping the 260 grey rock islets.
