Isinomaki is situated approximately 210 miles (338 kilometers) northeast of Tokyo, the national capital.
Isinomaki isn't the only place in this popular region worth seeing; visitors can also hit the road and discover the unique qualities of the surrounding landscapes, cities and towns. Tagajo, is 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the northeast, while Taiwa lies 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the east.
When it's time to spread your wings, why not visit the nearest regional area. Sendai lies 25 miles (40 kilometers) away and is home to attractions such as Museum of the Forest of Depths of the Earth, Sendai Stadium and Sportsland SUGO. Aoba Castle (Sendai Castle), Rinno-ji and Miyagi Stadium are also good places to spend some time.
One of the best parts of exploring the world's many cultures is employing local languages, so why not try out some rudimentary Japanese during your holiday. Knowing a range of practical words and phrases like "Isshoni odorimasenka?", which, in English means "Would you like to dance with me?", can make your trip all the more enjoyable. "Benjo wa doko desu ka?" ("Where's the toilet?") is another good phrase.
When it is time to leave Isinomaki, use your last yen on last-minute souvenirs and bid a fond Sayōnara (farewell).
