Specializing in fresh maguro (tuna), there are many high-end seafood restaurants in the city serving delicious, freshly-cut sushi, making this coastal city in Miyagi Prefecture a local and delicious foodie heaven! The town also has a long culture of sake brewing, namely with 3 major sake breweries that are linked to the sacred Shiogama Shrine in the center of the city.
