Miyagi has much to offer outdoor enthusiasts throughout the year. Mountain and coastal trails make for rewarding hikes. Smooth roads with stunning views beckon cyclists. Go paddleboarding on the ocean and lakes, or swimming in them. Come winter, Miyagi slopes welcome skiers and snowboarders with deep, silky powder.
The best way to appreciate local culture is to experience it directly. Hop aboard a fishing vessel and learn how oysters are farmed right from a lifelong oyster fisherman. Back on land, learn the secrets of sushi-making from a master chef. Join a meditation session at a centuries-old Buddhist temple. Learn traditional crafts from an artisan preserving time-honored techniques. Getting to know the people of Miyagi through local activities will make for an even more memorable journey.
