  • It is a huge Castle is not left, the castle of the Edo period is endured. It is overlooking the city of Sendai. And the parking is paid, and more than one hour parking fee was even added as well.

  • I went to see statue of date Masamune of Aoba Castle, Sendai long Buri. Today is good weather, watching the large Crescent-shaped helmet date Masamune, next month to imagine what was. (^^)

  • There is no heaven, only a statue of Ida. The night will be light, and because of the height, overlooking the Sendai area of the night is not wrong. But the distance from the railroad station is a little bit, and the road is a bit steep. The advice is to take the light bus, only the light bus return 6 o ' clock is the last. If you want to go hiking in winter, the advice is to wear ice claws, otherwise the ramp is very difficult.
