Godaido Hall is a small wooden temple that stands on the closest islet to the pier. There is a short bridge with many gaps (a little dangerous) and the islet offers a good view of the bay. You will see many stalls selling oyster.

The hall was originally constructed in the 9th century and rebuilt in the 17th century. The outer walls are covered with ornate carvings of animals that represent the Chinese zodiac. The building houses five wooden statues that are made open to the public once every 33 years (next in 2039).

Don’t miss the little temple and the traditional Japanese wooden bridge. It’s exceptional beautiful when you arrived during sunset in Autumn.

Godaidō Temple was one of the many incredible sites that make up the foreshore of Matsushima! I was blown away by the detail, the beauty, the colours, the views, the bridged triple-island... Everything!
Spend some time there and just enjoy everything around you!

A big temple with two others very close. Entry fee of Y500 quite reasonable. Lots to see in the grounds.
