At a Glance
This is more or less a suburb of Sendai without the convenience of trains or subways. But it has a Seiyu and that is what makes it awesome. It is littered with small restaurants like North Pole, good for Japanese, and it has a great Udon shop (tempura mochi a must) but the Seiyu is where the money is. It is located on Route 4 and it has bowling, an arcade, a video store and karaoke. Since it is centralized in one fun location it is whopping great time. The next greatest place in Tomiya is Jusco. It is huge mall on Route 4 and usually all the kids from the surrounding high schools and junior high schools go there to hangout. It has a movie theater so you can keep up to date on all the new movies. (If you show your gaijin card you sometimes get for half-price). Our last location is a restaurant called Love&Pizza Del Sol, which is not NY pizza, but it is good. It is located across the street from Jusco and it is not terribly expensive. It will definitely be one of the best pizzas you eat in Japan.
Moving east from Tomiya towards the Pacific Ocean you arrive at nishisancho, what locals collectively call this hovel of two cities and three towns.
