Highlights

Staying overnight in Sendai? Why not get your next day of travel off to a healthy start with a fresh breakfast from the markets surrounded by beautiful forest on Mt. Aobayama! 

 

Your first stop will be to Sendai’s ‘Asaichi’ (morning market), also known as Sendai’s ‘kitchen’ where restaurant owners and local residents alike source their fresh produce every day. Everything from the morning’s catch to fresh fruit, vegetables, rice-balls, bread, coffee, mochi, croquettes…you name it! Pick up some rice-balls and your favourite side dishes to create your own ‘obento’ lunchbox! 

 

Even though the market is in the middle of Sendai City, just a short 10 min subway ride will take you out into the green oasis of Mt. Aobayama. Trek along one of the nature trails with your guide before stopping at a scenic point to enjoy the fresh air and your fresh breakfast!
