Overview

I'll show you gorgeous temples, gardens, beautiful islands and delicious food !

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.

By the way, be foodie during the trip and have a fantastic memory with your five sense. After spectacuIar cruising, introduce you a nice seafood restaurant in Shiogama city next to Matsushima. If you don't have seafood, I can introduce, some other good restaurants.

“ Wonderful Matsushima Experience ”

Chie was a first-class tour guide with vast experience and knowledge of the area. She planned our tour down to the exact times and was able to fully explain the historical background and significance of each place visited. She even gave little-known information about the surrounding area and good places to eat and things to do. We visited Kanrantei and she talked about the historical background of the teahouse and explained the very sweets we were eating there. At Entsuin temple she gave detailed explanations on the various statues and caves and its significance to the area, as well as helping me take lots of pictures. She explained also how the Tsunami had effected the area. She even introduced me to charcoal ice cream, part of an ice cream shop that has numerous flavors not common outsid... read more

“ 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.

CHIE:

I'm honored to guide Alex-san, who has wide knowledge about Japan. We talked, laughed and impressed ourselves. All experiences and memories with Alex are treasures for me.I'm highly motivated to study more about Japan.
