Airmen adventures: Sendai, the "City of Trees"

Matsushima, located approximately 30 minutes from Sendai, is one of Japan’s Nihon Sankei (three great views). The port area is home to over 250 pine-tree coated islands, the Zuiganji, one of the Tohoku region’s most important Buddhist temples and is an area that attracts thousands of people each year. Pictured is Fuukurajima, one of the larger islands in the area. A local superstition is that if you cross the bridge with a boyfriend or girlfriend, you’ll be destined to break up.
