Sendai Airport- Matsushima- Hiraizumi- Guided Liner

    


*Updated with new schedule 11/1/19*
Visitors arriving at Sendai Airport can now take a direct bus to the World Heritage site of Hiraizumi with a stop in Matsushima, one of the Three Most Scenic Spots of Japan, the Mitsui Outlet Park Shopping Center, and the Sendai Umino-Mori Aquarium. Hiraizumi is known for its beautiful temples connected by a forrested path. Matsushima is famous for its picturesque scenery of 260 pine-covered islands, impressive temples, and oyster cuisine. The Umino-Mori Aquarium brings you into the underwater world surrounding Japan and lets you see penguins and sea lions up close.

These new bus routes are designed to make travel simple, bring you straight to the tourist and hotel area of Matsushima, and avoid confusing transfers. Both buses are operated by Northern Iwate Transporation Inc.
