Thursday Snapshot: Matsushima Temple Figurines

Matsushima temple figurines for good luck in marriage.
We found these while on a tour of Matsushima in the fall of 2011. Famous for the series of small islands off-shore, the city was affected but not devastated by the March, 2011 earthquake and tsunami. (Some theories hold that the islands actually acted as a buffer when the tsunami rolled in.) Utterly charmed, we hope to return again.
