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.

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