  • The bus stop is attracted by the big Red Bird's home, although it takes a long, steep ladder. The building color of the main hall attracts attention. There are times when you can take a loop bus to see

  • A very nice small temple not too far from the site of Sendai Castle. If you want to stay in Sendai for a while and want to see the sights this is a nice visit. I recommend taking the subway to international center station and the walk first to the site of sendai castle to get a few nice pictures and then retrace your steps and cross the river to visit Osaki Hachiman (make sure to check the distances as all of this together is a bit of a walk with some uphill parts). The best place to grab a bite in this area is near the coop supermarket accross the road from Osaki Hachiman's main entrance.
  • I had a good refreshing promenade at this jinja. Very nice place.
  • 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.
