Shiogama and Matsushima are places with easy access from Sendai.
When you come here, you definitely cannot miss one of Japan's three famous sights, Matsushima.
A famous poet of Japan, Matsuo Basho couldn't think of a poem because the sight was just beautiful. He wrote, "Matsushima, Oh Matsushima, Matsushima." Don't you want to go here now?
This time, I am going to hop on a cruise to Matsushima from Shiogama and go up close to this spectacular sight!

Nature's art that floats on the ocean is spectacular!
This island looks like a spaceship.
Nioh-jima is a masterpiece inside the Matsushima Bay and was created due to erosion from waves.
It sounds like the waves are sounding a bell by pounding on the four holes at Kane-jima.
