  • It is a nice place can feel passion for whisky taketsuru's, and harmony with nature. I think souvenirs are also limited, so easy to buy. Also, you want to go.

  • Hiking back to is this day was a tour stop. Usually even heavy rain umbrella is being prepared and in a dangerous thunderstorm warning was issued on this day but can turn to walk under an umbrella that was called off. That means valuable experience. Therefore, after studying history at the video soon and tasting. We were all slowly. But usually, I eat but not because I enjoyed. Nice, good weather and souvenir shop would think.

In the city center of Sendai, you'll find a good range of budget and luxury accommodations to suit a range of tastes. From standard high-rise hotels to traditional "ryokan" (guesthouses), they sit pretty close to the main train station, forming clusters around the main public parks, commercial developments, and temples. The surrounding landscape features a number of "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) located in clusters around hot springs. Take a look close at Mount Okura and Kamakurayama for some of the most concentrated patches of spa retreats.
