A hidden scenic spot in the east part of Matsushima. The garden-like peak of Mount Otakamori offers spectacular views of the rugged coast line leading to Matsushima. The local specialities in this area are delicious oysters and seaweed, which are farm-raised in the mineral-rich ocean.
Higashi Matsushima, Miyagi
Generously proportioned oysters and seaweed are the local specialties. "Sagakei", one of the three most beautiful gorges in Japan awaits. The spectacular view can be enjoyed throughout the year, but the oyster season makes it even more special.
