This is Rakanjima Island as seen from the beach at the tip of Kunoshima, located near Fukuurajima Island. At present, the right side of Rakanjima has collapsed, as many of the pines in Matsushima Bay have fallen victim to the pine-eating nematode beetle. However this photo demonstrates the lush pine cover of the island in those days.
