25.Mutsushima (松島) is a group of islands in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. There are some 260 tiny islands (shima) covered in pines (matsu) and is ranked as one of the Three Views of Japan.
Located half an hour outside of Sendai, Matsushima (松島) is famous for its bay,
The small town is also known for Zuiganji, one of the Tohoku Region's most important Zen temples.
** Matsushima was hit by the earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011, but escaped major damage thanks to its protected location inside the island dotted bay. Most tourist attractions, shops and hotels reopened within a few weeks or months of the earthquake.
