Summer is over, it's time for onsen season again! Admire the beautiful autumn foliage and enjoy a soak at the cold Tohoku region.

Autumn in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture

The hot summer now feels as it has been gone for a while and the autumn foliage season has arrived here in the Tohoku region.

If you have the chance to stay in Sendai, come over to see the great falls of Akiu and take a soak in one of the local hot springs. 
Akiu is a place located just 50 minutes drive away from the city of Sendai.
It would be best if you come driving yourself by one of the Japanese rent-a-car services.

If you need some tips on how to get around the Tohoku region by car, look at our previous post here.

If you're using public transport, you will be getting off at the Akiuotaki bus stop.

<Important!> Just make sure you keep in mind that buses have fewer services as little as one a day to get there on weekends and the public holidays.
  • Despite the inconvenience of access, there are quite a few restaurants and places to stay near the falls. 
  • Rairaikyo gorge is another place near the falls that you must visit. (Map)
