About Miyagi Prefecture

Miyagi Prefecture is about 300 kilometers northeast of Tokyo. It stretches along the Pacific Ocean to the east and has rich fishing grounds and great scenic beauty, including one of Japan’s three most famous views—the myriad islets of Matsushima. Mountain ranges stand to the west, including Mt. Zao, Funakata, and Kurikoma, spectacular in every season. The Sendai Plain, in the center of the prefecture, is a fertile grain-producing region. The capital city of Sendai, nicknamed the “City of Trees,” is known for its tree-lined boulevards. It has been a political, economic, and cultural center for the Tohoku region for centuries and offers a uniquely beautiful urban setting that is harmonious with nature.
In the Great East Japan Earthquake that struck on March 11, 2011, Miyagi Prefecture suffered immense damage, but has been able to make steady progress toward recovery thanks to the warm support of so many people, both in Japan and internationally.
