Matsushima Bay is famous across Japan and around the world as one of the nation’s largest and best producers of tasty oysters! Thousands of tourists flock to the area every year to catch a glimpse of the scenic view of the 260+ tiny islands that dot the bay (named one of Japan’s top three scenic views!), as well as indulge in some local oysters.
This ticket package will take you a little further from the tourist path to a quieter area of Matsushima town, where you can experience the seafood like one of the locals at ‘Sugihara-Isao Shoten’, a local fish market serving the freshest catch of the day! Together with a shuttle bus ticket from Sendai International Airport to Matsushima, this package includes:
12 local oysters (and a small BBQ to grill them on!)
1 BBQ scallop
Onigiri rice balls (made with locally produced rice)
Discover the sights and flavours of the ‘real’ Matsushima Bay!
