Excursions around Sendai
This morning, a guide will meet you and accompany you on a quick train ride to the neigbouring town, Shiogama, a flourishing fishing village and one of the most important fish providers in Tohoku. You will taste delicious, fresh fish donburi (fish on a bowl of rice) with the ingredients of your choice for breakfast.
In the afternoon continue to Matsushima Bay, which is dotted by many pine clad islets and has been ranked one of Japan's three most scenic views. Take a public boat from Shiogama, providing you with splendid views of the islands and bay. After landing you will also visit the islets that are reachable by bridge from the mainland.
Travel from Sendai to Hakodate (Rail Journey)
Transfer to Sendai station to board the Shinkansen train to Shin Hakodate Hokuto. The Shinkansen that connects Japan's main island, Honshu, to Hakodate in Hokkaido, opened in March 2016 and is the latest addition to the bullet train family.
Hakodate is Hokkaido's third largest city, located at the island's southern tip. Hakodate is best known for the spectacular views from Mount Hakodate and the fresh seafood. As one of the first Japanese harbour cities to be opened to international trade after the country's era of isolation, Hakodate has experienced notable influence from overseas, and the foreign population's former residential district and a Western style fort are among its main tourist attractions. Onuma Park, with beautiful island dotted lakes, is located only half an hour north of Hakodate.
