Where the People of Sendai Relax
Kotodai Park is in the city center, near Sendai City Hall, Miyagi Prefectural Office and many national government branch offices, and only a few-minutes’ walk from Ichibancho shopping streets and Tohoku’s busiest business district, Kokubuncho. Surrounded by zelkova and ginkgo trees, Kotodai Park is an excellent place for walks because of the foliage information maps that you can consult while strolling through the deodar cedars, cherry trees, azaleas and Japanese clovers. There are also flower beds, a plaza, outdoor music venue, water fountain, shops and restrooms. Businessmen take breaks here on weekdays, and entire families come to visit on weekends. It is also the main stage for various tourist events such as the Sendai Aoba Festival and Jozenji Streetjazz Festival. You can also enjoy works by famous sculptors within the park.
