Matsushima (松島) is a small town in Miyagi prefecture, northeastern Japan. The town faces Matsushima Bay, famous for some 260 tiny islands (島 - shima) covered in pines (松 - matsu) — hence the name -- and ranked as one of Japan's Three Great Views.
In 1689, Haiku poet Matsuo Basho visited Matsushima on the trip
recorded in Narrow Road to the Deep North. A well-known poem often
attributed to Basho claims to record his reaction, signifying that
nothing more could be said:
A-ah, Matsushima, ah!
Today's Matsushima is perhaps a little less inspiring, but still a
worthwhile day trip if in the region.
