Well, the weather was pretty bad. It was so hot and so extremely disgustingly humid!! Oh how I love Japanese summer!!! Probably one of the most uncomfortable weather experiences of my life!
BUT we still did manage to have a nice time. Even dripping sweat, we saw some beautiful shrines and temples, saw a few of the famous Matsushima islands through the fog (the fog was incredible, you could barely see - the pic here is not clear because of the fog), and ate lots of fresh sushi. H also had beef tongue, a local specialty, but I wasn't too keen on trying that. And we decided it's an area we wouldn't mind going back to, except NOT in the summer!
Pics to follow over the next few days.
