Travel diary on May 7, 2016

I rented a car in front of Sendai station. The first destination is Akiho no Taki(Akiho Waterfall).
There was no tourist except for me, my girlfriend, and venders preparing for opening of stalls.

The next destination is National Michinoku Lakeside Park. I arrived at the park, but because of its season, the only flower I could see in full bloom was canola.

I didn't plan where to go after the park.
Anyway, I drove a car toward Fukushima prefecture. I went to Mt.Ryozen, which is famous for its strange rocks. What shocked me was that there was just a little rustic amusement park for children.

On my back to Sendai, I dropped in at Shiroishi-jo castle.

5 minutes before returning the rental car, I found a signboard showing "This is the westernmost point of Tsunami in 2011 by Tohoku earthquake".

I moved to Sendai Airport, and boarded an airplane for Kansai International Airport.
