This is a great way to visit Sendai attractions in an efficient manner, but the bus stops service at 4:45 pm and it’s a bit confusing to find your way back to Sendai Station.

Used the Loople because you can get it right off the bullet train in Sendai. I did the combo subway pass and actually used the subway towards the end of my ‘loop’ around town. Easy way to make a day of touring Sendai!

The Loople (hop-on, hop-off) one-day pass is a great way to see the attractions of Sendai. We made the mistake of doing it on a Monday, when most of the museums and other attractions are closed.

We are great fans of loop buses in Japanese cities and this one will get you to many of Sendai's attractions but some patience is required. The whole loop takes around an hour and a quarter and there is only travel in one direction so...More

This is a round trip bus that covers the major attractions of Sendai. The ticket is for one day. So you can hop on and hop off. It is quiet convenient. You should consider to use it to get from point A to point B.

The loople bus is rather cute and is very easy to use. Worth a day pass as it allows you to get around most parts of the city. The bus stops at the mains shine, the mausoleum, the castle site and the mediatheque and cruises...More

Useful bus route around the tourist sites. Very busy on a rainy day. Could probably do with a bus going the opposite way round the loop in the summer when it is busy. We did not plan our route properly and so had to sit...More

You can get tickets at the Tourist Center in Sendai Station, and the bus stop is just outside. Easy way to tour the city and stop to see the sights that you choose to visit.

In five hours, you could probably choose 3-5 sites depending on how long you stay at each one. The bus goes in a one plus hour loop in one direction so I don't understand the idea of going to the farthest location first and... More

No. The bus covered the major tourist spot within the city. If you do a Google search on "Sendai Loople" you will find a map of all the bus stops.
