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.

  • Participated in the all you can eat oysters with Matsushima Bay Cruise cruising. Weather was nice and warm, staff were very helpful. But I'm delicious oysters, seasoning, I get bored on the way. Very good views of Matsushima. Very popular is tourists were many.
