10 minutes by car from the Sendai-Miyagi Interchange, this Sendai City municipal observatory is located in Nishikigaoka, Aoba Ward. It was relocated and rebuilt in the suburbs of Sendai City in 2008. It features a planetarium, 1.3 meter-diameter Hitomi telescope, and exhibits that let you observe the universe through models and videos.

Review of Sendai Astronomical Observatory

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/01/18 Very close up (can stand beside) the real working big telescope of japan with interesting presentation (in Japanese)
The presentation that let you stand in the real one of the biggest telescope of Japan (they claimed) during real working, ceiling opening, telescope opening there big lens, and to let you see through...
Reviewed:2018/11/09 スタッフの方が熱心です
郊外にあります。バスでも行けますが、車でのアクセスが一番便利だと思います。天文に興味がない方も、大人も子供も楽しめる場所だと思います。プラネタリウムと展示室セットの利用がお得です。
Reviewed:2018/05/12 ひとみ望遠鏡の説明はぜひ受けてほしい!
天文台行ってみたい!と思い立ち、仙台旅行の時に訪れました。大人2人で行きましたが、とても楽しめました!展示も体験できるものが多く、またスタッフの方がとても楽しそうに説明してくださる姿が印象的でした!ひとみぼ望遠鏡、という日本で7番目に大きい望遠鏡で、金星を見れたのはとても感動でした♪また行きたい!

          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.
