When the subway is opened in December, it will be able to go easily in the family. Less snow in Sendai, so we open even in the winter period, I think that it is good to continue to warm.

Not that sophisticated, but an enjoyable place to wander. Red pandas and Japanese monkeys the main draw.

Yagiyama Zoo located in yagiyama mountain in Sendai City and you can ride a bus from Sendai station to the yagiyama zoological park or you may use the Sendai Loop bus. Very excellent place, you can enjoy watching the animals from all over the world, feed them sometimes, and relaxing between these activities.
