In the north of Miyako City, Iwate Prefecture, the land is greatly uplifted.Coastal terraceIs developing[6]..Therefore, the terrace cliffs are in contact with the sea and the coastline is monotonous.HarborThere are few suitable places for.Also, the terrace cliffs are of wavesErosionThere are also places where the sea cliffs are rich in variety,Kitayamazaki,Unosu CliffThere are many scenic spots such as.The terrace surfaceErosionThere are many places where deep valleys have already been formed byHachinohe CityGentle in the surrounding areaplateauIt is in a stateAgriculture:,LivestockAnd so on.

As mentioned above, the ria coast of the Sanriku coast is the area south of Miyako city, but the word "rias" itself is sometimes used to refer to the entire Sanriku coast, including the north of Miyako city.[9][Annotation 1].

The following theories have been put forward regarding the formation of this terrain.PlioceneDue to the ground movement that occurred in, Sendai Bay, which had spread inland from the present, was uplifted and turned into land, and at the same time, the land was projected to the part corresponding to the present Matsushima Bay by the mass movement, and the terrain became like a peninsula.Eventually this part will be eroded by the river and a valley will be carved.PleistoceneThe peninsula was gradually submerged by the fault movement of the Nagamachi Rifu Tectonic Line, which is now called in the early days, and a sea erosion surface was formed, and the high places became islands.The peninsula that sank from the middle to the late Pleistocene uplifted again and became a sea erosion land, and was eroded again by the river.At the end of the Pleistocene, the water submerged again due to the flexure of the Nagamachi Rifu Tectonic Line, leaving only the high part as an island and forming many drowned valleys around it.Repeated uplift, subsidence and erosion shaped the terrain of Matsushima as it is today.It is believed that the island-free waters of central Matsushima Bay were once plains that developed into valleys.[3]..There are other theories as well.

Most of the areaStrata TheTertiaryOf the layerTuff,sandstone,Conglomerateな どErosionIt is made of very brittle rock, especially the parts washed by the waves are easily eroded.Therefore many islets are at the topPineVegetation is vegetated, and the base near the sea surface shows a white to grayish white rock surface.In addition, the area near the surface of the sea was washed by the waves and was cut at an acute angle.mushroomSome have a shape similar to.It is also counted as a strange rock due to erosion.SagakeiYou can also see sea cliffs like this.Erosion like this,weatheringSince Matsushima is built on a stratum that is susceptible to action, it is thought that the landscape has changed little by little over a long period of time, and there are subtle differences between what was described in the past literature and what is now. It is believed that.

The islands of Matsushima are often described as "92 eight islands," but the number of islands is not accurately known and has been written in various sources since ancient times.In the "Matsushima View Collection" compiled by Oyodo Michikaze in the Edo period to introduce Matsushima widely, XNUMX, the geography compiled by the Sendai Domain "Sealed climateIn 87, 1910 (Meiji 43) "Matsushima Park Management Overview" has more than 240 islands, and in 1981 (Showa 56) "Prefectural Natural Park Matsushima Academic Survey Report" there are 230 islands. Jurisdiction over Matsushima BaySecond District Coast Guard HeadquartersIs aware that the number of islands is 128.Since the number of islands was uncertain in this way, a survey was conducted around 40, and the number of more than 260 was regarded as Matsushima's unified view, and this was notified to each institution. In "History of Matsushima Town (History 2)" (1991), the problem of the number of these islands was touched upon, and with reference to the Geographical Survey Institute map, 144 islands in Matsushima Bay were named and 98 were unnamed. It states that there is.However, this number includes some that are no longer islands due to landfills, earthquakes and natural collapses.In addition to this, he added that if reefs were included in the number of islands, the number of islands in Matsushima Bay would be about 300.[4].
