DIY Market 'Obento' & Morning Trek
Although Sendai City is the largest metropolis in the Tohoku region it is also known as the 'City of Trees' due to its abundance of beautiful nature in and around the city. Just a short subway ride from the centre of the city will take you to Mt. Aobayama park, the perfect location for some 'forest bathing' as you trek through the lush greenery in summer, beautiful Autumn colours or even snowy winter landscape. Before heading out on your morning trek, pick up a delicious and healthy breakfast from the market stalls of Sendai's 'Asaichi' morning market!

We were approached by an English-speaking docent, who gave the two of us a personal tour of some of the highlights of this excellent museum. We caught the subway and walked about 10-15 minutes through the campus of a conference center. After we were done, we realized that the
