  • Matsushima Bay is a collection of more than 260 islands in Miyagi Prefecture.

  • It comes with several temples, beautiful gardens, and memorial caves,

  • and originally came to use as a military port,

  • although these days it’s mainly a famous sight-seeing spot.

  • You can take a boat ride around throughout all the little islands.

  • This would be a nice place to have your own boat.

  • Yeah, it would be.

  • Do you wanna do it?

  • Get a boat?

  • Let's get a boat! LET'S DO IT

  • Okay!

  • It's absolutely stunning. It's one of the three main, big sights of Japan.

  • One of the three ancient big sights of Japan.

  • There's this one, Matsushima Bay,

  • I think there's Miyajima,

  • and then there's a chain of islands somewhere near Kyoto.

  • I think this is the most beautiful.

  • Have you been to all three?

  • No.

  • I've been to two of them, though!

  • Can you read it for us?

  • Yeah, it says...

  • the nearest McDonald's...

  • from here...

  • Jun, help me out.

  • Jun.

  • What does it actually say?

  • I mean to be fair,

  • if you're gonna give directions to McDonald's, this is the way to do it.

  • A fantastic bay with 260 tiny islands

  • with Sharla in Japan.

  • See the islands and you can see Sharla in real life!

  • 'Cause I just permanently sit here on this bench.

  • I like it that much.

  • This is the vlogger squat.

  • Chris, you could start an exercise routine for vloggers.

  • Go up and down.

  • Or like the action shot.l

  • Like, "Yeah, temples!!"

  • Wha- "Yeah, temples!"

  • Dammit, Chris!

  • The current one, this one I think, was built in 1604

  • by Date Masamune.

  • By a samurai?

  • One of the most famous Japanese samurai warriors.

  • As beautiful as the sea looks here,

  • this bay is actually filled with sunken rocks

  • that make navigation by outsiders difficult.

  • Date Masamune, one of Japan’s most famous samurai,

  • saw the potential as a military port and built up the infrastructure of the area,

  • including rebuilding the nearby Buddhist temple, Zuiganji.

  • Zuiganji is one of Japan’s national treasures.

  • Unfortunately the temple sustained major damage during the Tohoku tsunami,

  • including the loss of 300 cedar trees.

  • Part of the temple also includes caves built in the Kamakura period approximately 800 years ago,

  • which were used for memorial services and to house the ashes of the deceased.

  • These trees are so tall.

  • Thatched roof cottages

  • A momiji bush?

  • Oh, wow!!

  • You gotta check out the tree over here.

  • It's like the best part of the whole place.

  • 700 year old tree.

  • It's not 800 years old but it's still quite impressive.

  • Ah, geez.

  • Well if it's not 800 years old then what's the point?

  • I don't get excited unless it's at least 800 years old.

  • Wow.

  • Omg.

  • This looks like something straight out of FernGully.

  • I said like something out of a fantasy movie.

  • Wow!

  • The bay and temples are too large to fully explore in just a couple hours,

  • so schedule the better part of a day here if you can.

  • It’s a beautiful and relaxing area,

  • so if youre going to be in Miyagi, definitely add it to your list of places to go!

  • It took them years to build the islands.

  • They built these...

  • It took them years, maybe 60 years to put all the rocks in the bay.

  • One of the largest construction projects ever.

  • Where did they get the rocks?

  • Ah... from...

  • mountains.

  • They... brought rocks from the mountains.

  • Brought rocks from the mountains.

  • And put them in the bay. And put them in the bay.

  • 60 years ago. Yep.

  • And then grew these trees on them. Yeah.

  • 'Cause they wanted to... rejuvenate the economy.

  • ...Mmkay.
