History

The modern province of Miyagui was originally part of the old land of Muçu. In 1600, Date Masamune constructed Sendai Castle, becoming the center of Sendai-han. In 1868, the land of Muçu was divided, with the new land of Ricuzen being established. In 1871, the province of Sendai was established. It was renamed Miyagui the next year. In 1907, the Imperial University of Tòhocu was established.

In 2011, an earthquake devastated the province. Sendai is particularly heavily hit and there are about two hundred thousand casualties. Since then, Miyagui is recovering.

Geography

Miyagui is located in the central part of Tòhocu, facing the Pacific Ocean, and contains Tòhocu's largest and capital city, Sendai. There are high mountains on the west and along the northeast coast, but the central plain around Sendai is fairly large.

Maçuxima is known as one of the three most scenic coasts of Japan, with a bay full of 260 small island covered in pine groves.

Although Miyagui has a good deal of fishing and agriculture, producing a great deal of rice and livestock, it is dominated by the manufacturing industries around Sendai, particularly electronics, appliances, and food processing.

Tourism

Sendai was the castle town of the daimiò Date Masamune. The remains of Aoba Castle stand on a hill above the city.

Miyagui boasts one of Japan's three greatest sights. Maçuxima, the pine-clad islands, dot the waters off the coast of the province.
