Come Explore The Wonder Of Sendai

Posted on 18 October 2018 by admin (0)

Sendai is one of the largest cities in Japan, with almost one million inhabitants. This place has rich historical and cultural background as it has existed since the 1600s. So we found it fitting to visit the resting place of the late feudal lord, known as Zuihoden and the experience was surreal. It is a very peaceful place, with the walkways surrounded by giant cedar trees, stone statues that depict the Momoyama cultural traditions.

Our experience

Well, after all that history, it was time for some whiskey. Wow, that’s poetic. The place I am talking about is the Miyagikyo Distillery which is the home of Nikka Whiskey, which is popularly called the father of whiskey. The 45 min tour was short but educating, and the sampling at the end was just beautiful.

You can’t be in this place and not taste the Gyutan, beef tongue. It is something which the tourists look for as soon as they land in here. It is the most famous dish, and we decided to have it in one of the well-known restaurants in the city, the Riyku Restaurant. Though psychologically I was feeling a bit anxious about eating “tongue,” but after the first bite, the road was smooth and very delicious. I now know why this dish is on everybody’s lips because it’s impressive.

It takes about 75 minutes to complete an entire loop of the city in a single shot. It is a fantastic experience which is not to be missed at any cost. Besides, it is the easiest and the economical way to get around.

After a long day of travel, who doesn’t want to relax and what better place than the Sakan Onsen. It is the most famous Onsen in Japan. Moreover, Sakan also offers traditional Ryokan where you can sleep along with the natural hot springs bath. Besides all this, this place¬†offers much more, and though it is often overlooked, it is a great city to visit as it provides once in a lifetime experience and is worth every penny.
