Matsushima


There are over 250 islands, of various sizes, in Matsushima Bay. We could only see a few of them because of the heavy fog, but on a clear day, the view is supposed to be quite something. In fact, Matsushima, which literally means "pine islands", is considered one of the Three Views of Japan, Japan's most scenic spots.
Oh well, better luck next time!

  1. Nat,

    This photo still has a nice effect, even if you didn't see the view on a clear day. Kind of a "Duck, the hurricane is coming!" look, very moody.

  2. Thanks Nancy. The foggy Entsuin and garden pics were also taken in Matsushima the same day! Definitely moody! And luckily there was no typhoon or anything rolling in. :P
