Matsushima ah, Matsushima!
Ah, Matsushima, ah!
Matsushima, ah!


Matsushima consists of some 260 tiny islands (島=shima) covered in pines (松=matsu) and the above haiku is dedicated to the beauty of one of the "Three Views of Japan." Sure, it's only one quarter the amount of the 1000 Islands of Canada and it doesn't have its own Salad Dressing (which I believe is about 90% of the Big Mac's sauce's ingredients), but it is very beautiful.

If you'd like to check it out for yourself, it's easily accessible from Sendai.

From the bus.
Another from the bus.

Pining for the fjords.
Where do you put the 7-11?
Sandy shore.
Sea weed salvaging.
Between a rock and a hard place.
Sand sculpted salvation.
Anti-gravity trees.

Stay tuned for more pictures...

Interesting article on some cool comics.
Noticed you didn't mention the fracass you got into when I was about to leave. Was hopin' you could enlighten me as I've got no idea- I tried to talk to the guy: seemed a little sleezy but not too chuffed about it...

The guy was a weenie but harmless. He apologized. By the way, who is this? (Your name comes up as weird kanji.) Alex?
