Zao is situated about 170 miles (274 kilometers) north of the national capital Tokyo.
To find out why so many holiday-makers keep choosing Miyagi as a holiday destination, ensure you and your family schedule in some time to explore the places surrounding Zao. Two examples of places within a relatively short distance of Zao are Yamagata, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southeast, and Shinchi, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northwest.
Approximately 16 miles (26 kilometers) to the northeast of Zao is Sendai, an important regional center home to Tohoku University, Sendai Mediatheque and Sendai City War Reconstruction Memorial Hall. Rinno-ji, Miyagi Baseball Stadium and Aoba Castle (Sendai Castle) are good places to visit.
Communicate with to local people in Japan by familiarizing yourself with the Japanese language. Using just a few useful phrases, such as "Isshoni odorimasenka?", which means "Would you like to dance with me?", can help to make your stay more enjoyable. And, for "Where's the toilet?", you can say "Benjo wa doko desu ka?" Don't be shy, just give it a spin!
At the end of your adventure in Zao, no doubt you'll bid this region a teary "Sayōnara" But be comforted by the fact that you'll be heading home with special photos, momentos and memories that are yours to keep forever.
