Introducing Miyagi Prefecture

Miyagi-ken (宮城県) is something of a transition zone between the rural hinterlands of the far north and the massive urban development that typifies much of central Honshū. Its capital, Sendai, has excellent tourist infrastructure, unique culinary offerings and plenty of cultural attractions to boot. Of course, if you want to escape the urban trappings and get back to the nature that most likely brought you up this way, then don’t miss the healing waters of Naruko Onsen and Matsushima, a worthy contender for the title of Japan’s most beautiful bay.
