Miyagi

Miyagi Prefecture is situated in Tohoku region, the northeastern region in Japan. Sendai City, the capital of Miyagi Prefecture, is one of the most developed cities in Tohoku region. Because of its location by the ocean, you find sushi and other seafood dishes are superb. In 2011, Miyagi Prefecture was affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake (also known as 2011 Tohoku Earthquake) along with other prefectures. It has been making a steady progress towards a recovery. People overseas might associate ‘Miyagi’ with the British rock band ‘Fujiya & Miyagi’. However, this ‘Miyagi’ of the rock band originates from Mr. Miyagi, a Nikkei Karate master from a movie ‘Karate Kid’, not Miyagi Prefecture.
