Today I headed to the coast to the small city of Matsushima.   Matsushima Bay, dotted with hundreds of small islands, is ranked as one of Japan's most scenic views.  It was this bay that protected Matsushima from major damage during the 2011 tsunami.

Unfortunately for me, it was overcast and threatening to rain all day.  So, while I am sure it is a beautiful view it was rather grey and dull during my visit.

Bridge to island with walking trails and views of the bay.
