Located on a hilltop, Petit Hotel Bistro Abalon boasts sweeping views of the ocean and Matsushima Islands, renowned as one of the Three Views of Japan. A lovely retro atmosphere hotel on a steep hill overlooking Matsushima bay. Really excellent quality and variety of breakfast served on each of the days. Welcoming and helpful hosts and appreciated the free shuttle to the station as the hotel is on a hill, it was a nice touch. The free private baths were nice, especially the hinoki bath. A lovely view from the room of forest and sea.
Resembling a Balinese resort, the Breezbay Seaside Resort in Matsushima offers massages, beauty treatments and tropical room decorations. A very friendly welcome and exceptional service from the staff. The bed and room were large by Japanese standards, and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast had a lot of variety. The COVID precautions being taken were stringent and reassuring.
Located in Matsushima, within 1.4 km of Entsuin Temple and 8 km of Shiogama Fish market, Matsushima Koumura provides accommodation with a garden and free WiFi throughout the property as well as free... The staff were amazing - the hosts are the nicest, friendliest people you can imagine. They took our picture, gave us advice about tourist attractions and let us pet their lovely little dogs. They were also very sweet when we stupidly came down stairs in our yukata, gently suggesting "maybe it's a little cold for that". Very sweet and understanding. Breakfast was amazing: hot rice, delicious miso-soup, local dish sasakama (sasa-kamboko), a little mixed seafood salad, tuna and wasabi, a generous slice of cooked salmon, wakame, pickles and an umeboshi (salty pickled plum!). The complimentary coffee was also awesome. The baths are lovely; so warm and right now, we both had them to ourselves which was incredible. If your main language isn't Japanese, don't worry: the hosts are so gracious, understanding and accommodating. Our Japanese is very rough so if you know enough to order in a restaurant, you will be fine. Can't recommend enough.
Uchi is situated in Matsushima, 200 metres from Zuigan-ji Temple. Guests can enjoy listening to music or watching TV in the common area. You will find a shared lounge at the property. Very friendly host! Complimentary green tea and croissant. Sweet music set-up - big record collection Comfy rooms
Offering Japanese-style rooms, Shintomi-tei offers public indoor/outdoor public baths and relaxing massages. Free Wi-Fi is available at the lobby area and free parking is on-site. The hotel is well located to explore Matsushima Area. Super view on the bay and safe location in case of natural disaster. The food was fabulous and you should not hesitate to take their half board option to discover some great Japanese food. The room was big. Big onsen
Boasting a garden and a shared lounge, Hotel Ubudo is located in Matsushima and is 900 metres from Entsuin Temple. The hotel is very nice and comfortable, beautiful rooms and a bathroom with a view. The hotel is very close to the red bridge leading to Fukuurajima and all the other attractions.
It's amazing. There's such an incredible amount to do and see. We explored for 5 hours two days in a row in the freezing cold and would do it again in a heartbeat it was so nice. So many restaurants, hotels, gift shops, places of outstanding beauty, museums... amazing.
It is really a beautiful view, with all those small islands covered with pine trees! The region is very prepared for the tourists, including bridge to one of the islands for people that like to walk around the trees! The Zuiganji temple is one of the most beautiful I've seen!
Very beautiful coastal town! Having two different train stations on each side of the town, makes the getting to/from very flexible and easy. Definitely a must see when visiting Sendai or the Tohoku/Myagi Area.
This is a very nice little town and a nice place to visit - I would go back. Good harbour cruise, nice temple visit - there are three close together. Oh and the castle shown on google maps is FAKE; its not a castle its a private residence.
Matsushima is a tiny place and does not have a lot to offer - also like any other traditional Japanese town it closes down at 6 PM - literally. Most restaurants and shops are closed, the streets atr dark. Not much to do. It is a great place for a short stopover.
The Zuiganji Temple has a very beautiful garden with budist sculptures engraved in caves. The Temple is very beautiful, with paintings with gold an enamel with bird motives. The boat ride to see the islands is very pleasant. Food is good everywhere. Oysters are the town speciality.
This is older ryokan that could probably use some updating. It is a bit out of the way on top of a hill, which involves a climb if you are walking there. It does result in a nice view. The food there was average, nothing really special. The rooms seem to be spacious, mainly because it doesn't ever seem to be fully occupied so they will give you the biggest space available. Staff is courteous and professional as in the rest of Japan. They held my bags and gave me a ride to the Rikuzen Matsushima Station.
We loved staying here giving us a great introduction in the early stages of our trip to the the traditional way of Japanese Life , We were able to get an early look at Onson -the bath ritual and prepare ourselves for the other onson and ryokans we stayed at along the way . The owners made our stay very comfortable and drove us to the station when we left . A peaceful place that we would recommend to anyone who wants to experience real Japanese food and life
One of my favorite guest houses by far! Exceptionally clean and really close to every sight in Matsushima. Eiju-san was very accommodating and provided vegan breakfast of rice and local Matsushima nori, as well as fruit. He also gave us great recommendations of places to visit in the area. We loved our stay and no doubt will choose this guest house again when we come back to Matsushima!

Elegant. Traditional Japanese hospitality in a beautiful setting. The multi-course dinner was a highlight. Public baths (and many rooms) have a stunning view of Matsushima Bay. Few staff speak English but it’s not a problem.
The hotel is very nice and comfortable, beautiful rooms and a bathroom with a view. The hotel is very close to the red bridge leading to Fukuurajima and all the other attractions.
Attitude of the staff, ambience. The sunrise view from the top of the hotel.
I think it’s an amazing hotel
