This park is same as the Sendai (Aoba) Castle site. Mt. Aoba is a hill in Sendai on which the Sendai (Aoba) Castle was built. Unfortunately, we do not have any old buildings from the Edo Period when the castle complex was completed.

Nice park located at Sendai where it's connected to the 'old' castle location. You can find the famous samurai (Date Masamune) statue standing there, from there you can enjoy the beautiful view of Sendai city.

This is a place to visit in Sendai. I came here twice with loople bus and car rental. If there is no rain, you can see the city of Sendai which is beautiful.

This is along the Loople Bus route and probably the most popular stop along the way. Nice view of the city as well a historic site in the history of Sendai.

This was one of the stops in the loople bus route. Some nice scenery and a good lookout point of Sendai. There were some restaurants that I suspect at tourist traps but a good stop to stretch those legs.
