Day 6 – Best of Northern Japan Tour

Today you will travel to Matsushima, a group of about 260 shima (islands) were covered in matsu (pine trees) and this is how the area got its name. Along with Miyajima and Amanohashidate, Matsushima Bay is considered one of the most scenic places in Japan. The islands can be viewed from various lookout points, or by taking a local cruise. The train from Aizu-Wakamatsu Station to Matsushima Station will take approximately 3 hours.
