Miyagi is a prefecture north of Tokyo. The capital, Sendai, is located on the east coast with its bay stretching from Iwanuma in the south through to Kesennuma in the north. Sendai is one of the few places you can both surf and ski if the conditions are right. Mostly, waves are small but consistent and can get busy on the weekends. The Great East Japan earthquake destroyed some of the coastline but that hasn't detracted from the surfing numbers.
