Despite the proximity of Matsushima to the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, the town was protected from the extreme tsunami by the islands in the Bay. However, many of the buildings sustained structural damage after the earthquake, including the Zuigan-ji Zen Buddhist Temple. In addition, due to it's proximity on the water many homes and business were severely damaged or destroyed by the 3 meter tsunami. Six (6) persons were also confirmed killed.


Sanriku Oyster Recovery Project has been started for reconstruction and Icannot but expect the success of the Reconstruction Plan.

Current situation of Sanriku oyster producing areas and challenges toward reconstruction

More than 20,000 people were victimized by the earthquake, and majority of oyster rafts, work facilities, and oysters in oyster culture beds were swept away.

Because Miyagi prefecture is the biggest seed oyster provider in Japan, oyster producers around the country have been affected.

Moreover, not only oyster producers lost oyster rafts and longlines, but also their ships, work facilities, septic tanks, and houses were swept away by the tsunami. Therefore, there are a lot of challenges ahead of us before we fully begin oyster aquaculture reconstruction.

(Chōmei-ana in Komonejima, about five meters in height, was known in folklore that people who passed
through there in a pleasure boat would live three years longer. However it collapsed in the Sendai earthquake.)

Matsushima (松島) is a group of islands in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. There are some 260 tiny islands (shima) covered in pines (matsu) – hence the name – and is ranked as one of the Three Views of Japan and also Oyster-producing area.

A well-known apocryphal haiku often attributed to Matsuo Bashō indicates that the poet is at a loss for words:

Matsushima ah!
A-ah, Matsushima, ah!
Matsushima, ah!
