One of Japan’s most famous attractions, the 260 islands of Matsushima Bay are considered one of the country’s top three scenic sites. A magnet for pilgrims, artists and poets for over a thousand years, many have attempted to capture the area’s breath-taking beauty believed by many to be a piece of paradise on earth.

Many of the islands can be reached on foot or a cruise amongst the thousands of bays and inlets is a truly magical experience. Whether you are strolling amongst lofty pine forests, exploring mystical temples, watching the moonrise over the glittering waters of the bay or the setting sun cast golden rays amongst the silhouetted islands, this is a place to slow down and appreciate the spiritual beauty of nature at its finest.
