Often referred to as the “City of Trees,” Sendai might be the largest city in the Tohoku region, but it’s also a very lush city. Just a short walk from the city center, you’ll find yourself immersed in nature, surrounded by parks, rivers, forests, and mountains. Who knew 1 million people lived in a place so surrounded by nature? Make the most of a morning in Sendai and join this Green Sendai Market Tour for a healthy dose of mother nature followed by a local morning market brunch in the city.
Start your day off right surrounded by nature; this Green Sendai Morning Market Tour will take you on a light hike through the forests of Mount Aobayama. Seemingly tucked away from the city, it’s actually just 10 minutes away on the subway from the downtown area! Your guide will take you through the forest, exploring among the beech trees, following mountain streams, and listening out for the call of local wildlife. Once you’ve well and truly worked up an appetite, you’ll head back towards the city center to visit the Sendai Morning Market for some brunch! Whether it be fresh seafood or a bowl of hearty ramen, it’s up to you at “Sendai’s Kitchen,” also called Asaichi Morning Market. Explore what’s on offer in this local market, and see what delicious foods catch your eye. There’s also the option of hitting up a local cafe if you feel like a more classic style of brunch, which can be recommended to you by your friendly local guide.
