  • After outlet in the morning, there is a little time in the afternoon directly from the Sendai bus to the bus past, small a bit ordinary, about to stroll less than half a day away! If there is no time, the advice can be skipped directly!

  • It is one of the friends came from outside, took up want to spot. Climb the long stairs and a national treasure. Donto Festival is most famous, climb the high fire and 裸参ri is a sight to see.

  • Taught at the Tourism Association of Sendai station, went in the Rupel bus. This is indeed a national treasure. Staff is great. Cherry blossoms in spring season is more formidable. There were signs, like visiting a sports player.

  • A locally revered shrine along the loople tourist bus.
  • A very famous shrine in Sendai. At daytime, sometimes you could get free guide about the shrine. At nighttime, it's just silent since almost nobody goes at night. Perfect for some photo opportunity.
  • A small and local shrine. Came here on the first day of 2017. Lots of people and was bustling with noise. Many vendors around. But tried some, but was not tasty.
  • Osaki Hachimangu is a beautiful temple. If you are in Sendai around 14th of january I definitly recommend you to check for the Dontosai, which is a local festival, held every year in this temple.
  • A beautiful Shinto Shrine with long history and attractive pattern. Some festival is held every year in this shrine. However, the English information on the site of the shrine is not much.
