Sendai Airport is the only airport in Tohoku (northeast) region run by the government. This airport has a role as the gateway to the Tohoku region.
The airport terminal building is located in the city of Natori and its runway extends to the city of Iwanuma. It is very unusual that the one facility extends over to the other city. There are many souvenir shops inside the airport. You may purchase Sendai's famous souvenirs here such as Zunda mochi (rice cakes covered with Edamame paste), Sasa-Kamaboko (bamboo-leaf shaped fish cakes), Sendai Beef, Beef tongue stew and Beef tongue curry.
Sendai's representative tourism spots such as Yurtec Stadium Sendai, Zuihoden and Akiu-Otani (waterfall) are in somewhat remote areas. So, how about using a rental car and enjoy the drive and sightseeing?
