๐—ฆ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐—ถ 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 ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚) โ›ฉ๏ธ Sendai is all about the Date clan, the founder ๐——๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐— ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐—บ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ฒ 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. ๐Ÿฏ๐ŸŽ‘๐Ÿ“ธ Nothing remains of ๐—”๐—ผ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ ๐—–๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜๐—น๐—ฒ, 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. ๐Ÿ“Œ Aoba-dori ๐Ÿ“Œ Date Masamune Tomb ๐Ÿ“Œ Rinnoji Temple ๐Ÿ™ ๐—š๐˜†๐˜‚๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ป. 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 ๐Ÿ™ ๐—ญ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฎ ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ถ. Mochi topped with a sweet paste made from edamame beans. There is a Haagen Dazs regional edition of this too ๐Ÿ˜ (basically, you can find almost anything topped with zunda in Sendai) ๐Ÿ”œ {Sendai detailed city tour}
