Museum / Science Museum

Approximately a 10-minute walk from the Shiraishi Station on the Tohoku Main Line, and a 10-minute drive from the Shiraishi Interchange off of the Tohoku Expressway, this museum is located alongside the Ote Ichinomikado gate to the Shiraishi Castle inside the Masuoka Park. The shop on the first floor of the castle sells items unique to the castle and other Japanese washi paper-craft products, and other local specialties such as Umen. One can enjoy at the restaurant various dishes incorporating umen such as shojuro umen using white miso, and their specialty soft ice cream. On the second floor is located the historical archive as well as a 1/100 scale model of the donjon surrounding the castle and other displays showing the steps by which the model was built. On the third floor is a theater which plays films in which the castle was used as a backdrop.

          Lying along the northeastern coast of Japan, Miyagi prefecture is home to lashings of natural parks, oysters, and hot springs. While the bustling city of Sendai offers some simple city entertainment, it’s the Matsushima islands that deserve the most attention, having boosted the prefecture’s reputation as one of Japan’s most scenic views.
