Natori is located some 180 miles (290 kilometers) from Tokyo, the national capital.
This part of Japan is popular with travelers from all four corners of the globe. To understand why, take a trip to the other fascinating natural and cultural attractions surrounding Natori. Shiroishi and Shinchi are two other places worth visiting while you're in Miyagi.
Sendai is 7 miles (11 kilometers) from Natori. This regional center offers a number of interesting things to do and see, including Miyagi Museum of Art, Rinno-ji and Tohoku University. Sendai has lots to offer travelers keen to hang around here a little longer. Sendai City Museum, Sendai Stadium and Museum of the Forest of Depths of the Earth are some of the other points of interest not to miss.
One of the best ways to bond with the locals is learning some of the local tongue, so before you head to Japan it is a great idea to practice a number of basic Japanese phrases and expressions. Coming to grips with just a few practical phrases, such as "Isshoni odorimasenka?", which is "Would you like to dance with me?", can help to make your stay more pleasant. "Benjo wa doko desu ka?" ("Where's the toilet?") is also useful.
At the end of your adventure in Natori, pack up your camera and mementos, spend your last of your yen, and bid Sayōnara (farewell) to this special place.
