Welcome to the "City of Trees". An economic, industrial, and cultural center in northern Japan flanked by green mountains and the blue sea, Sendai is full of surprises—with winding alleys teeming with modern technology and ancient paths that haven’t changed in centuries. Enjoy shopping, hot springs, and the beautiful scenery of each season.
The hotel is located at the heart of Sendai, surrounded by the urban buzz of shopping arcades, myriad restaurants, and more. Sendai City Museum and Sendai City Convention Center are just a ten-minute walk away, and countless corporate headquarters and offices are in our immediate vicinity: Iris Ohyama, msn.com, Peach John, TempStaff, Mitsubishi, SoftBank, and Pioneer Jellice, to name a few.
Shopping aficionados will revel in the diverse options close by, from large department stores to specialty shops and bustling, fast-paced downtown markets. Sample a range of dining experiences, from traditional Japanese cuisine to popular and tempting ramen noodles. Explore nearby Aoba Castle—ancient home of the 17th-century leader Date Masamune, the founder of Sendai. Used as a natural moat, the Hirose River flows alongside the castle and is considered a symbol of Sendai.
For a taste of the majestic nature surrounding the city, take in views of Matsushima Bay, one of Japan’s top three tourist sites that is so picture-perfect it is often used as a backdrop in films. Yagiyama Zoo is only 20 minutes away by car, and a 30-minute drive brings you to scenic hot springs such as Akiu Onsen and Sakunami Onsen. About an hour from the city, Zuigan-ji is a striking Zen Buddhist temple originally dating to the ninth century which now shares its grounds with an art museum.
