Fukuura Island – Miyagi | Travel Information

Our Rating
Fukuura Island Bridge

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

To access the Island, you will need to cross the fukuurabashi bridge, which stretches 250m across the ocean. You will need to pay 200JPY to access the bridge by purchasing a ticket from Cafe Bayland. The ticket includes return as well. 

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. Although the bridge across to Fukuurajima is flat and wheelchair accessible, the island itself poses a different challenge due to the constant sloped terrain and occasional staircase.
