Oyster Paradise Matsushima
Experience oyster farming and tasting at one of Japan's Three Most Scenic Spots.
Everyday (Exc. Jul and Aug)
Number of Participants
The Tohoku region is a foodie’s paradise – especially if you love fresh, delicious seafood! The entire coastline of Miyagi Prefecture is famous for its giant, milky, juicy oysters, but the pearly heart of the action lies in Matsushima Bay (also famous as one of Japan’s top three scenic views). The incredible oysters of Matsushima are not only loved throughout Japan, but they hold strong ties with oyster cuisine around the world, with locally produced oyster ‘babies’ being exported to other oyster-obsessed countries like France for overseas cultivation.
This guided tour will introduce you to both the culture and flavours of Tohoku experienced through local oyster farming, alongside a local fisherman!
The tour including a trip out to the oyster farms on a local boat with a local fisherman who will show you around the bay and tell you more about what makes Miyagi Prefecture the perfect environment for cultivating oysters.
Head back to shore and enjoy Local Seafood Lunch.
Finally, work-off your lunch with a hike to Otakamori lookout and enjoy panoramic views over the bay.
Experience the culture and flavors of Japan's most scenic bay!
