We spent a couple of hours walking around the entire island. The path is easy to follow and even in the middle of the day, it's pretty deserted. There are restrooms on the island, too. We stopped at the single snack shack for green tea...More

The landscape is quite nice but honestly, it's just a sea shore. However, it makes a nice day break from Sendai. Don't take a cruise to Shiogama, the harbour is really ugly.
