Absolutely stunning.. Loved hiking around and going on its beaches to see the bay. I would suggest coming near sunset where the water reflects the bridge and island with nice warm colors

We spent a couple of hours walking around the entire island. The path is easy to follow and even in the middle of the day, it's pretty deserted. There are restrooms on the island, too. We stopped at the single snack shack for green tea...More

After paying 200Y each at a small shop (Cafe Bayland) on Matsushima, we crossed a scenic narrow red 252m-long bridge to get to Fukuurajima, then enjoyed a delightful walk around the islet. We had appreciated the seaview of the Bay from the Basho RIver Cruise...More

The landscape is quite nice but honestly, it's just a sea shore. However, it makes a nice day break from Sendai. Don't take a cruise to Shiogama, the harbour is really ugly.
