Matsushima

04/23/2007

| | More

From Sendai, I did a one-day trip to Matsushima, which features a group of about 250 small islands, officially ranked as one of Japan's three greatest sights. Well, I can confirm that official rankings are not really trustworthy! I expected something really astonishing...actually it's nice but seriously, in terms of sights, Japan has much better to offer!

In fact, here's the view you have from some of the official best viewing spots:

The weather didn't help but still...The problem is, it's too far to really appreciate the beauty of the islands, plus each viewpoint offers only a limited panorama.

Here are a couple other shots:

I have mixed feelings about Matsushima! It was ok, but because of that "three great sights" thing, I had extremely high expectations, and was in fact a little disappointed.

But from tomorrow, I only have good things to tell...

En fait c'est surtout magnifique vu du ciel, pour ce que j'en ai vu à la télé.
Fallait faire tour en hélico !

Faut qu'ils revoient le classement alors : les trois plus belles vues en hélico !...

Je dois dire que je préfère le cerisier en fleurs.
