    Beautiful views, close to boarding the boat. It is best to plan your visit on the day the weather is nice, you can shoot (when fog) or explore the fun (when Sun or moisture is crazy).

    It is said here we go to the real religious, said the pilgrimage beyond the dimensions through an enormous, huge rocks and boulders from the, to visit the temple.

    While the other two islands are surely the main attractions of Matsushima, don't miss out on this one. It offers a nice scenic view on the whole bay and several old Buddha panels.

    Beautiful island. The larger one to the north is better but Oshima is worth a visit if you have time.

    This sacred island is a peaceful place to sit and enjoy the atmosphere of Matsushima. The small caves and Buddhist funereal tablets lend it a mysterious feel.
