Fodor's Review

If you're looking for a stopover between Yamadera and Sendai, this relaxing hot spring area (with five hotels) is five minutes by free bus from JR Sakunami Station. Sakunami is only 32 minutes (¥480) by local express from Sendai Station, close enough to be an alternative spot to spend the night. There is also a Nikka Whisky distillery here, if you're interested.
