Enjoy the Flavors of Miyagi Prefecture
Gourmet food is an essential part of sightseeing in Miyagi Prefecture.
That being said, one dish we recommend is wasabi-don (a bowl of rice topped with wasabi and other ingredients).
It's delicious just with fresh wasabi, but sometimes it's served with beef, so it's a must-try dish when visiting Miyagi Prefecture.
There are also other specialties, such as Sendai Seri (Japanese parsley) Hot Pot, and if you fancy yourself some spirits, you'll definitely enjoy it with some sake, such as Abe Kan, Hakurakusei, Hagi no Tsuru, or Ichinokura!
