Sendai is easily accessed via shinkansen or connecting flights direct to Sendai Airport, and is the gateway to the still relatively undiscovered powder snow of northern Honshu. Connect by bus service direct to mighty Zao Onsen, or via train & connecting buses to Geto Kogen, Shizukuishi, Appi and Tazawako to the north or the Aizu areas to the south like Grandeco and Alts Bandai.
Now fully recovered from the 2012 earthquake, Sendai is on a mission to attract more international visitors. It’s the largest city in Honshu north of Tokyo, big enough to offer fantastic shopping, restaurants and nightlife, but small enough to be much easier to negotiate.
So no need to stop in sometimes overwhelming Tokyo for your city and shops fix, get it right here in Sendai.
Outstanding amid the huge array of Sendai accommodation options, the Sendai Royal Park Hotel offers a country club like setting in expansive grounds that equates to total tranquility with a luxe touch, part of the Royal Park Hotels Group. In winter the grounds often have snow cover, and the fairy lights make it even prettier then.
