Sightseeing in Sendai

See the Web site arrow-06.gif, with the following cautions:

  • [Updated on April 18, Sunday] Although we already have some cherry blossom in Sendai, full bloom is delayed due to cold weather.
  • The Tsutsujigaoka Park arrow-06.gif is perhaps the most accessible place for cherry blossom viewing (~15 minutes on foot or 1 stop by train from Sendai Station). It is also beautiful at night.
  • Most buildings of the Sendai (Aoba) Castle arrow-06.gif were lost during the 19th-20th centuries, though the site is part of the Aobayama Park arrow-06.gif, which is good for cherry blossom viewing in mid-April.
  • The Nishi Park arrow-06.gif used to be good for cherry blossom viewing as well, but most of the cherry trees have been removed due to subway construction.

More Excursions

For those who are staying a few extra days before or after FLOPS 2010, here are several possibilities of more excursions around Sendai. All of them are 1-2 hours from Sendai by train (or express bus).
