Sunset Cruise with Sake & Sushi Pairing

First-class access to a first-class view!


Matsushima Bay is know as one of the ‘Three Scenic Views of Japan’, but few have the chance to enjoy the view at its most romantic – sunset!


Lining-up with the dates of the famous Autumn illumination event at Entsuin Temple, this experience program offers guests the chance to not only take-in the incredible sunset views from the top floor of a privately chartered boat, but savour the tastes of the region with a meal of fresh sushi prepared right there on then by an on-board sushi chef! Pair the delicious local seafood with few glasses of local sake as you watch the sun go down.


After the cruise, feel free to head to Entsuin Temple to enjoy the Autumn light-up event!
