    Charm of Japan Compressed in a Walking Distance

    Shiogama is a town located along the coast of Miyagi Prefecture and about half an hour train / car ride from Sendai. Since ancient times, the town has been admired by Kyoto aristocrats for its beauty and rich culture.
     
    Today, it is still a fantastic place to go. It features one of the richest seafood and sushi culture in the whole region, as well as famous sake breweries. Enchanting Shiogama Shrine is another must-see spot of the town, together with the town's traditional salt-making ceremony, which gave the town its name. Furthermore, unlike other cities which have been invaded by nationwide franchises, Shiogama is still richly illuminated with individually-owned stores and restaurants. Their service, products and food are genuinely Shiogama-specific and will astonish you with their cultural depth and sheer quality.
     
    Most remarkable of all, all those are within well walkable distance, packed in this compact city with endless discovery. It is an ideal place to spend a day or two if you are coming nearby to enjoy real charm of Japan.
