Fukuura Island
Fukuura Island Bridge

Fukuura Island, Known in Japanese as Fukuurajima, is a small island that sits off the shore of the city of Matsushima.

Fukuura Island is a favourite place for many locals, as it provides a place for many to relax, enjoy nature, and walk across a picturesque bridge (fukuurabashi) which spans across the bay from the mainland.  

The Island is a prefecture park, and also a fully natural botanical garden, with there being over 300 unique species of plants scattered around the island. 

Fukuura Island has a nice walk around the park, which should take no more than an hour to complete. There are also areas which provide great views of the Matsushima bay.
