What to Expect

Matsushima has been boasting of its beauty since 9th century, and is ranked one of Japan's three most scenic views. A lot of people who visit this place were moved by its beauty and admired it by drawing pictures or composing poems. About 260 islands covered with pine trees are scattered in the bay. You can view from up close on cruise. It's a beautiful and enchanting view. Although Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami hit Matsushima in 2011, the area was protected by the islands and escaped major damage.
There is also the greatest Zen temple Zuiganji in Ohshu area or North Eastern Japan. The paneled door, the fan light, or gorgeous paintings on the sliding doors and the alcove are regarded as perfection of artificial beauty that represents Japanese natural beauty.

“ Had a wonderful experience in Matsushima with this guide. ”

I had a truly wonderful experience in visiting Matsushima by using Tamada-san as a guide. Her knowledge, kindness and humour allows me to enjoy my visit in Matsushima. She brought me to lots of interesting places there (such as Matsushima island cruise, Zuiganji, Kanrantei) and I really learned a lot from them. She is also very flexible and was able to accommodate her itinerary to include other places which I want to visit. We are becoming a good friends and I would certainly use her service again when visiting Sendai or Fukushima area.
