Stay Healthy on your Travels in Sendai(1/2)
Travel should always be filled with new, invigorating experiences, and moreover leave you feeling rejuvenated for your return back to the day-to-day. We invite you to take a trip to Sendai, an exciting yet relaxing city in Northern Japan. While smaller than Tokyo, Sendai City has everything you could want from Japanese city life, but markets itself with "health tourism", focusing on healing, invigorating experiences of an outdoor nature. This isn't to be confused with "medical tourism", as this doesn't have to do with medicine or healthcare, but rather healthy activities centered on movement, cuisine, and above all fun. Here's a quick overview of how a trip to Sendai will leave you feeling "Genki" to the max! That's Japanese for energized!
Harbor House Kaname, secure your own seafood
What sort of healthy trip in Japan would be complete without local seafood? Harbor House Kaname takes your nutrition a step further, leading you on a boating excursion to the sea around Matsushima before the meal. This is a famously picturesque spot, and a wonderful place to admire the coastal beauty of Japan. In the warmer seasons, fish for goby to be grilled upon your return, or in wintertime, harvest stalks of "Wakame" seaweed to be boiled in a tasty stew. We can all understand that some adventurous leg work helps us appreciate our food so much more, and you can expect the clean, cold sea up here to cleanse your senses and boost your spirits.
SUP Tours at "Yayu"
Stand up Paddle boarding (SUP) has taken off as a popular way to both get some exercise and explore aquatic environments. It's easy enough to learn in a day for most people, and just challenging enough to be a thrill. You can also sit down while you paddle, or stay on your knees to make it even easier. Yayu's concept is all about "playing outdoors", and soaking in the natural beauty of the Matsushima area. Weave through the waterways surrounded by deep green, or cruise the mellow coastline to get panoramic views of stunning Japanese scenery. If you've never tried SUP before, you'll be amazed at the new perspective you'll see the landscape from, and if you have tried it, then you already know how fun it will be exploring new rivers and beaches here.
