Motoyoshi

 

RESTAURANTS:      

 

Endo Sushi has a good reputation.

 

TRAVEL:

 

The Kesennuma line takes you to Sendai. The express trains (twice a day) are direct and take l hr 30 mins. Get off at Rikuzen ­Koizumi for Koizumi Beach or Ohya for Ohya Beach.

 

If you take the slow train (2hrs 30mins), you must change at Kogota (be sure to check the amount of time the train change takes). Also, make sure you get on the right section of the train. Sometimes it splits and goes in different directions!

 

Route 45 runs between Motoyoshi and Kesennuma (30 mins. by car). The nearest neighbours are probably the Kesennuma ALTs.

 

SPORTS FACILITIES:

 

There's a hard tennis court behind the kominkan and a big gym next to the kominkan but things are a bit old.

 

CULTURAL ACTIVITIES:

 

Kominkan offers photography, ceramics, and taiko (drum) classes.

 

PLACES OF INTEREST:

 

Koizumi Beach is beautiful and popular with wind-surfers. Ohya Beach is nice.

 

TOWN FESTIVAL:

 

The Kagaribi Festival (bonfire festival) is great. It has good music, food and lots of stars (it's held in the mountains).

 

GENERAL COMMENT

 

There's not too much around here except for rice paddies and mountains, but the beaches are really nice.
