Recommendation by Wabisavi

In case you hadn't had an overdose of the Date already in Sendai, you can hop over to 𝗠𝗮𝘁𝘀𝘂𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗺𝗮 to get the full package. Actually, there is another very important reason for Matsushima's fame and why it should be on your must-see list if you are in Sendai. But I'm a Masamune fangirl, so priorities first (I could probably make a whole {𝗠𝗮𝘀𝗮𝗺𝘂𝗻𝗲 𝗳𝗮𝗻 𝗽𝗶𝗹𝗴𝗿𝗶𝗺𝗮𝗴𝗲} list if I put myself to it 🙈). Only 3 places have earned the yearned for crown of "best scenic spot in Japan", and 𝗠𝗮𝘁𝘀𝘂𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗺𝗮 𝗕𝗮𝘆, with it's self-contained arcipelago, is one of them. I narrowly avoided getting swept away by a typhoon by visiting at sunrise and escaping by lunch time, so the overcast sky and gale-like wind dampened my experience a bit. If possible, do try to visit during a sunny day! 📌Fukuurajima Island 📌 Oshima Island 📌 Godaido Temple 📌 Entsuin Temple 📌 Zuiganji Temple 📌 Matsushima Castle 📌 Date Masamune Historical Museum 📌 Kanrantei Tea House 🍙 The oysters in Matsushima are praised as being better than the ones in Miyajima (in my opinion they are not). Many shops offer all-you-can-eat grilled oyster courses. 🍙 If you're feeling particularly adventurous, how about trying the local soft serve cone? It comes with a topping of oysters. 😦 I don't really know how I feel about it. Access: Take JR Senseki Line to Matsushimagaikan St.
