Matsushima Bay's Kanejima

When I took the harbor boat cruise in Matsushima Bay in April 2006, the boat I was a passenger on passed by many of the islets that dot the bay (there's about 200 of them).

The boat passed one of the larger ones and it was only today that I found out that it has a name.

Thanks to Muza Chan's Gate To Japan blog, I now know that it is called  Kanejima (or “bell island"). This is because when waves pass through 4 natural arches, they make a bell-like sound.
