■What is Matsushima?
Matsushima is well known as one of Japan’s three most scenic spots along with Ama-no-Hashidate in Kyoto and Miyajima in Hiroshima.
The coastal landscape with over 260 pine-covered islands is so spectacular that the most famous haiku poet "Matsuo Basho" was so awed by its beauty that he couldn't write anything at all.
