  • Home to one of the top three scenic views in Japan and also one of the largest cities

  • in the country, MIyagi prefecture gives visitors an opportunity to experience both the beauty

  • of nature and taste the bounty of the sea all in the same trip.

  • Visiting these two places in tandem shows off the best of both coastal town and the

  • bustling city, and that's exactly what we're going to do today.

  • My name is Raina Ong, staff writer for and today I'm on assignment in Matsushima

  • and Sendai.

  • I'll take the overnight bus from Narita International Airport to Matsushima, and from

  • there take the train to Shiogama where I'll have breakfast at the Shiogama Fish Market

  • and visit Shiogama Shrine.

  • After that, I'll take a sightseeing cruise from Shiogama back to Matsushima to get a

  • closer look at the islands in Matsushima Bay.

  • Once on land, I'll explore Zuiganji Temple, have lunch, and visit Godaido Hall and Fukuura

  • Island before calling it a day.

  • The next day, I'll head to Sendai by train and use the sightseeing loop bus to visit

  • the Zuihouden Mausoleum and Sendai Castle ruins before heading to downtown Sendai shopping

  • district where I'll sample some of Sendai's local specialties before returning to Sendai

  • Station.

  • So follow along as I go on a two day trip to Matsushima and Sendai.

  • Day 1

  • I'm now at Matsushima Kaigan Station.

  • I'm kind of hungry, so I'm going to look for food, but first I'm going to put this

  • in the locker over there.

  • I'm here at the Shiogama Fish Market which opens to

  • the public pretty early.

  • I'm going inside to have some fresh fish and have some breakfast.

  • One of the nice things about being at the fish market is being able to put together

  • your own breakfast.

  • I bought some seafood from the stalls behind me, and I'm going to create my own seafood bowl.

  • It's pretty fresh.

  • I'm now at the Shiogama Shrine, one of the most important shrines of the region and a

  • pretty popular sightseeing spot.

  • This place has over 1000 years of history, and some of buildings here were built

  • around the turn of the 18th century.

  • Next, we're going to head back to Matsushima from Shiogama via a scenic sightseeing cruise

  • which is also great way to see the famous pine tree covered islands that dot the bay.

  • Zuiganji Temple is one the area's most important and famous zen temples.

  • It was originally established in the 9th century, but the buildings that we can see today was

  • built in 1609 by the feudal lord Date Masamune.

  • There are lots of interesting things to see on the temple grounds including the main hall,

  • a museum, and some caves.

  • For lunch, I'm at a popular restaurant that serves two of Matsushima's seafood specialties,

  • anago and oysters.

  • The anago is served on top of rice and the oysters I ordered both grilled and raw.

  • Godaido Hall can be said to be the symbol of Matsushima Bay thanks to its prime location.

  • The small hall is a well-visited attraction and offers a nice view of the bay.

  • My next stop for today is Fukuura Island which you can see behind me.

  • It is one of the few islands which is connected to the mainland by bridge, and there are a

  • bunch of walking trails which you can follow.

  • Day 2

  • I'm in Sendai now and from Sendai Station I took the sightseeing Loople bus to my first

  • stop Zuihoden.

  • Zuihoden as you can see behind me is the mausoleum of Date Masamune, the first feudal lord of Sendai.

  • There are lots of other things to see around the spacious grounds including other buildings

  • and the tombs of Date Masamune's descendants who were also feudal lords of Sendai.

  • Next we're back on the loople bus and heading to the Sendai Castle ruins which are a great

  • place to enjoy a panoramic view of the city.

  • While there isn't a castle left to see, the foundations still remain and you walk

  • across where the castle once stood.

  • Sendai's downtown is really the heart of the city.

  • There's so many shopping streets around here, like the one I'm on now.

  • And together they form one of the largest shopping arcades in the Tohoku Region.

  • Zunda is a sweet edamame paste that is a specialty in Sendai.

  • You can have it in a few different ways but I'm going to have mine with mochi.

  • Gyutan, or grilled cow's tongue, is one of Sendai's most well known specialties.

  • This sliced beef dish is typically served with beef soup and a bowl of rice, and Sendai

  • Station is one of the most convenient places to find a gyutan restaurant.

  • And that concludes our trip to Matsushima and Sendai.

  • From here, you could continue your stay in Sendai, take the overnight bus back to Narita

  • Airport or take the train to explore other parts of Japan.
