Recommendation by Wabisavi

𝗦𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗮𝗶 was my home base as I toured around Miyagi and Yamagata prefectures. It was easy to take day trips to more rural locations, and return to a shopping and eating scene that remains vibrant long after sundown. (Actually, I got so caught up in all the beautiful places to see in the region, I almost forgot to schedule time to visit Sendai City proper 🙈😂) ⛩️ Sendai is all about the Date clan, the founder 𝗗𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗠𝗮𝘀𝗮𝗺𝘂𝗻𝗲 having become the symbol (and cutest mascotte) of the region. If you're in Sendai, it's almost a sin not to visit the Zuihoden Mausoleum. 🏯🎑📸 Nothing remains of 𝗔𝗼𝗯𝗮 𝗖𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗹𝗲, but a fun VR app will try to show you its full glory (I say try, since it has much room for improvement). The iconic statue of Date Masamune on a horse is located here, and is lighted up in bright pink after sun down. Since the castle is built up on a hill, you can also enjoy a good view of Sendai, both day or night. 📌 Aoba-dori 📌 Date Masamune Tomb 📌 Rinnoji Temple 🍙 𝗚𝘆𝘂𝘁𝗮𝗻. Beef tongue, grilled or boiled or raw sashimi style. I like the bouncy texture of the grilled one, seasoned with just salt or miso sauce 🍙 𝗭𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗮 𝗺𝗼𝗰𝗵𝗶. Mochi topped with a sweet paste made from edamame beans. There is a Haagen Dazs regional edition of this too 😍 (basically, you can find almost anything topped with zunda in Sendai) 🔜 {Sendai detailed city tour}
