Hello friends! Check out this new batch of updated photos of our week-long stay in Matsushima Bay and on the pine-clad islands themselves!
Basho once wrote of Matsushima:
Morning and evening Someone waits at Matsushima One-sided love.
I have to say that we fared better. There was not only two-sided love, but what seemed like love from all sides as nature graced us with warm days of unexplicable beauty. The sparkling ocean, the red-trunked pines, and the sea-birds all one miasma of summer light. Please enjoy the rest of the photos on our FLICKR page and get ready for the next, and final phase of our photographic journey through Japan: Matsushima - Mt. Gassan
