Shizugawa Vacation Packages
Tokyo, the national capital, is situated 230 miles (370 kilometers) to the southwest of Shizugawa.
To understand why so many travelers opt for Miyagi as a place to vacation, make sure you and your family see a bit more of the many scenic and cultural attractions around Shizugawa. Ichinoseki, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southeast, and Hiraizumi, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the southeast of Shizugawa are good spots to check out if you have the time.
Hiraizumi is around 30 miles (48 kilometers) from Shizugawa. This regional center offers a wide range of points of interest, like Chuson-ji Temple, Motsu-Ji Temple and Takadachi Gikeido. Golden Hall, Takkoku no Iwaya Bishamon-do and Pure Land Garden are also well-worth a visit while you are here.
Before you escape on your adventure in Miyagi, do as the savvy travelers do and get to know some key words in Japanese. "Isshoni odorimasenka?" is Japanese for "Would you like to dance with me?" And, learning "Benjo wa doko desu ka?", which means "Where's the toilet?", can be very handy.
Birthday of Emperor Akihito is celebrated on the 23rd of December, so if your visit coincides, put aside your sightseeing and join in the local festivities with locals.
At the end of your adventure in Miyagi, you'll be sure to bid this place a fond "Sayōnara" But be comforted by the fact that you'll be leaving with memories and photos that you can enjoy for years to come.
