Welcome to the official tourism website of Miyagi Prefecture. This site was written by a team of English-speaking residents with a variety of backgrounds and interests. We want to tell you about the places we love, share experiences that are special to this area, and introduce you to people you can meet here. In this diverse region, the boundary between "visitor" and "local" is often blurred. Come visit and enjoy a taste of local life!
Seasonal vegetables, fresh seafood, and local sake await. Rich soil, abundant clean water and nutrient-rich currents have made Miyagi an agricultural and seafood leader.
The urban and the rural, sea and mountains, tradition and modernity coexist in close proximity. Miyagi is an ideal place to explore, experience life in the countryside and take part in cultural activities.
