It runs a few blocks from JR Station. The covered walkway is lined with shops and restaurants on both sides. You can find basically everything here — department store, household goods, second handed books etc.

A few restaurants, shops, and a McDonald's. But you really go here to see two really cool postwar style alleyways: Iroha Yokocho & Bunka Yokocho (although this one has been going since before the war actually!). Fun to walk through during the day, a must...More

As always, no trip to Sendai is complete without a wander up and down Ichibancho. The stores, street scenes, seasonal decorations and people watching are the best way to get to know the real Sendai.

Many types of stores along this long venue. It is under a roof but outside. Many restaurants and bars. Sores not inexpensive and some thrift shops. A nice shopping adventure. Clean!

The SunMall cuts through the main streets of Senda City (including Aoba-dori and Hirose-dori) and is filled with international and japanese restaurants, bars and cafes, retail shops, and convenience stores. It is clean, pleasant and safe.
