OVERVIEW

After a short, 15-minute walk through a pine forest, a small mountain road opens suddenly upon a view of the Matsushima Bay, renowned for centuries as one of Japan’s three greatest scenic views. Since olden times, the Japanese people have been enchanted by scenes of these small, pine-green islands, which dot the blue sea with color.
Otakamori is a mountain that rises from the center of Miyato Island, the largest island in Matsushima Bay. Along with Mt. Tamon in Shichigahama and Ogitani and Mt. Tomisan in Matsushima, Otakamori provides one of Matsushima’s Four Great Views; the view is both picturesque and magnificent. From the mountain’s summit, one can enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view of the Zao Mountains that cradle Matsushima Bay and of the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean.

Higashi-matsushima is an SDGs (UN sustainable development goals) model city. In addition, through the JICA, the city’s Nobiru district has formed an ongoing partnership with Banda Aceh, which is also a city damaged by a tsunami, in Indonesia. Higashi-matsushima has also been approved to be an “Arigato” Host Town for Supporting Reconstruction for Denmark at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. The Yamoto district is known as the home of the Blue Impulse acrobatics team, which is based at the JASDF Matsushima Base, and, during airshows and practice days, aviation fans from all over the country come to visit. In the Oku-Matsushima area, you can enjoy the Miyagi Olle Oku-Matsushima trail, a style of hiking that originated in South Korea, while summer sees the opening of the Miyato Tsukihama Beach. The Higashi-matsushima nori udon noodles that I developed following the disaster are very well regarded, so please come and try them for yourself.
