Sendai

3.7
Landmarks · Castles · History Museums
Human history and nature combine seamlessly in Sendai, with the influence of each never far away in this green and storied city. The woods and cherry blossom orchards that surround the main temples have as many tales associated with them as the buildings themselves, while "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) dot the volcanic landscape of hot springs, putting the natural features of the land to good use in a range of treatments. You'll find that a large number of attractions in Sendai relate to the life and work of Date Masamune, the founder of the modern city, and his family, including temples, tombs, and museums. The surrounding landscape possesses many notable features, including areas of hot springs, a number of waterfalls, and forested limestone islands off the coast. When using our Japan online tour itinerary builder, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
