This is a round trip bus that covers the major attractions of Sendai. The ticket is for one day. So you can hop on and hop off. It is quiet convenient. You should consider to use it to get from point A to point B.

You can get tickets at the Tourist Center in Sendai Station, and the bus stop is just outside. Easy way to tour the city and stop to see the sights that you choose to visit.
