Matsushima by train

Planning a visit and possible boat ride later this year. If poss returning from Shiogama to our hotel in Sendai.

i am pretty sure Matsushimakaigan is the best. because then you can visit Kanrantei Tea House on the way to visiting Zuiganji Temple, before possibly having some oysters http://www.sakana-ichiba.co.jp/ checking out the bridge and fukuuru island and then take the boat back to shimgama. Although IMO, if i was on the right day, i would start at about 3am at the shimgama wholesale market since it is my understanding that the auctions there make those at tsukiji look tiny for tuna - http://www.nakaoroshi.or.jp/
