Miyagi is a prefecture full of diverse, seasonal beauty reflected in its landscapes, practically begging to be explored by bicycle. There are many routes from which to choose, and each provides the valuable opportunity to engage with local culture. Many areas of the prefecture were affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011, and passing through highlights the resilient spirit of its residents, and the progress they’ve made in rebuilding. One such recommended route is the Southern Miyagi Prefecture Kamakaido Cycling Route, a 115-kilometer-long circular course that begins at Sendai Airport, and offers the opportunity to stop by many facilities that have been built as part of recovery efforts. The Miyagi Cycle Platform provides multilingual route information so you can plan your perfect trip.
