A day in Matsushima, close to Sendai...

This is about 2 hours from Tokyo, via Shinkansen (the bullet train) I was experimenting with my new digital camera, so I apologize for the artsy-fartsy-ness of this page.

What can I say, Matsushima is beautiful. I was only there a day, and didn't learn too much, but the scenery was fantastic.

We crossed a long red bridge that led to a small island. Then crossed the island, to where the cliffs dropped off. This was the view.

This was the view from the restaurant we ate lunch at. Almost as good as the view in the previous picture. Hmmm.

Josh, the quintessential tourist. This is the figurehead on the "sight seeing" boat we took part of the way home (we were staying in a Ryokin in Sendai)

This shrine was built, from what I gather, just because the view was so beautiful from this spot.

There were a number of these little statues in one of the shrines in the town. I just wanted to try out my new camera.
