From Openwaterpedia

The Nihonsandaikei Okumatsushima Open Water Swim is an open water swimming competition held in Matsushima, Japan and ranked among the Top 50 Open Water Swims In Asia.


Matsushima is a city on the northeast coast of Japan's Honshu Island. It’s known for the hundreds of forested islands that dot Matsushima Bay. The grand Zuiganji Temple was built in 1609. Nearby, Entsūin Temple is noted for its moss, rock and rose gardens, and for its colorful fall foliage. From the port, a curved red bridge leads to the wooden Godaidō Temple. Trails criss-cross the pine forest on Fukuurajima Island.
