Local guide companies offer SUP experiences at many locations throughout Miyagi. Please note that most companies require advance bookings, and that availability is subject to weather conditions.

- By stand-up paddleboard you can see some of the most beautiful parts of Miyagi in a way you would never be able to by car or boat. It's not too difficult either—I was able to pick it up in about thirty minutes, so was able to spend the rest of the time exploring the islands and taking in the scenery at my own pace.
