Last year I took a trip to Sendai and visited Matsushima which is said to be one of Japan’s three great views along with Miyajima and Amanohashidate. I found more photos of my trip and resized some others to provide this gallery of beautiful Matsushima which has a group of 260 small, pine tree islands as well as the many temples nearby.
wikipedia has a good description of some scenery walkways:
Matsushima’s seaside attractions are within walking distance of the train station and ferry pier, but the best views are from mountaintops not so easy to reach on foot. The most spectacular views are from Saigyo Modoshi no Matsu Park, a ¥660 cab ride up from the station. It is covered with cherry blossoms in the spring, but the food available there is nothing special. Other overlooks are Sōkanzan, a promontory that juts out into the bay, and Ōgitani, a hill across the coastal highway from Sokanzan.
