Shopping and walking

It's one of the main streets of Sendai, large with many trees. It's a nice place to walk and shop. It's near the central city and some touristic places.

Aoba-dori is a beautiful tree lined street that runs from the Sendai Staion to the Sendai Castle. It is major artery within the city with trees and island separating most lanes of traffic. It was restored after the war when most of this area was destroyed. You will find shopping, restaurants, banks, and stores, but the highlight is the trees... More

It's a good walk along Aoba-dori street, you can find lots of trees along the road (no wonder Sendai is also named as the city of trees). From Omachi Nishikoen station, we walked along Aoba-dori street towards Sendai station, this was a very good walk, and we found different shops/restaurants too.

Take in the walk and enjoy some people watching. Of course if shopping is your thing then there is lots to see. Having walked this avenue several times I find it easy to access and good exercise.

Morning I woke up at six o'clock, I went up to Aoba Street by bicycle. Autumn leaves of the season is a good feeling. Leaves of zelkova is, fall has been, I feel the deepening of autumn. In the morning the car is small and there is a Yes calm atmosphere and day of hustle and bustle.

The street is by far the prettiest one around and it leads to the big park which is down about a mile

You can find just about anything in Aoba-dori! Excellent restaurants, shops and people watching. You will need very good walking shoes.

Down this street, are lined many trees. There's a few restaurants, but not much for shopping. During the summer there are many festivals around this area, so they close off the street. During the winter time, they have a festival of lights. It's quite pretty.
