  • Matsushima Shimameguri Kankosen cruises

    Miyagi Pref. Miyagigunmatsushimamachi Matsushima Chounai 85
    Matsushima Shimameguri Kankosen cruises offer scheduled trips on large ships, setting out from the Matsushima Coast, for 50-minute cruises in which passengers can enjoy viewing the Matsushima Islands, which have traditionally been ranked as one of the “Three Views of Japan.” For an additional charge, passengers can relax and enjoy the views from the luxury seats on the ship’s upper deck. Other island cruises using medium-sized and small-boats (for groups of at least 15 passengers and at least 12 passengers respectively) are also available; because these boats have a shallower draught than the larger Nio-maru, they are able to follow different routes, giving passengers a closer look at the Matsushima Islands.

  • Kyukamura Kesennuma-Ohshima

    Travel / Tourism
    Miyagi Pref. Kesennumashi Sotobatake 16
    This hotel is located on Kesennuma's Oshima Island about five minutes by shuttle bus from Uranohama Port. The spacious white-toned lobby-lounge is comfortable, soothing, and exudes a sense of cleanliness. They have a lunch service with lots of gourmet Kesennuma delicacies like abalone and Sendai beef, as well as a large public bath where guests can hear the surf. Both are available to non-staying guests as well. Their shop features an array of items from a long-standing Kesennuma dealer and customers enjoy shopping for items like nori, kombu, and camellia oil. They hold participatory programs as well.

    全国的にホテル料金が高騰している状況下では、地物料理が2食付、更に付帯サービスありの休暇村は魅力だと思います。 夕食にはフカヒレスープをオプションし、気仙沼を味わい、ご飯はササニシキとヒトメボレが用意されており、流石でした。ただ、志賀島(福岡県)や大久野島(広島県)と比較すると地産地消のディスプレイや器が地味で楽しむ演出が控えめでした。東北の美学なのでしょうか。 部屋は8畳和室にお一人様、波の音が...
