It's one of the main streets of Sendai, large with many trees. It's a nice place to walk and shop. It's near the central city and some touristic places.

You can find just about anything in Aoba-dori! Excellent restaurants, shops and people watching. You will need very good walking shoes.

Down this street, are lined many trees. There's a few restaurants, but not much for shopping. During the summer there are many festivals around this area, so they close off the street. During the winter time, they have a festival of lights. It's quite pretty.
