Miyagi prefecture

Miyagi is located on the Pacific side in the Tohoku Region on Honshu Island. On the east side, the Sanriku Coast is a beautiful shoreline with cliffs and coves. On the north, Naruko is a famous area of Onsen (hot springs) and Koyo (autumnal leaf) viewing. The capital city Sendai is the largest city in the region which has often called as the “City of Trees”, a place of great natural beauty. Many of the tourist attractions in the city, such as the Sendai / Aoba Castle, are related to Date Masamune, one of the most powerful Daimyo (feudal lord) who reigned over the district in 17th century. About half an hour outside of Sendai, Matsushima is famous for its beautiful bay, which is one of the “Three most scenic views of Japan”. The bay is dotted by 260 small islands covered by pine trees.
