I woke up feeling a little discombobulated and groggy. Best I find a convenience store and load up on caffeine!
The plan today is to return to Matsushima, check out the grounds of the Zuigan-ji Temple, then up to Saigyo Modoshi no Matsu-koen Park which is supposed to offer good views of the bay, and head up the coast to the town of Kamaishi.

Looks like a 200km run from Sendai to Kamaishi taking about 5 hours.

The grounds of the Zuigan-ji Temple.
This is a Zen temple established over 700 years ago.
These were rooms and living quarters for monks carved out of the solid rock. Impressive. I really liked the karma in these grounds. Very good aura.

Looks a bit dank.

Tall trees line the way.

A tea room.

Then I stumbled across this little gem of a shrine! Divine!

And there was no way I was gonna mess with the little fella hanging around outside it !

Dude, you da man !
