    thanks for the interesting stories, great links and info. i’m an art teacher form the US traveling to Shiogama shortly as part of the japan fulbright memorial fund teacher program and i hope (even though i am a novice) that i can get some paddling in.

  2. Hi
    I’m glad you found it useful (my aim was to to make a useful blog)
    But, we are going to be neighbours! Shiogama is 10 minutes from where I live. lets go kayaking.

    An English friend and I are coming up to Matsushima and the Oshika peninsula around the 6th of September. I have a 2 person foldable, but maybe it would be better to rent some singles and hire a guide? If you have any info or time, let me know.
