The Sanriku Coast stretches from Miyagi in the south to Aomori in the north. A lot of it is made of jagged cliffs and sharp rocks but some of it is also made of beautiful beaches. With this much variety of landscapes it's sure to please everyone. The best way to explore it is via Route 45. It starts in Sendai, Miyagi and goes all the way past Hachinohe in Aomori. Don't forget to enjoy the excellent seafood along the way.

I grew up in Quebec, Canada and studied electronics in college, never worked in that field. Moved to Vancouver in the early 80's where I found my real passion, cooking. I ran my own restaurant for 14 years after that worked as a financial advisor for 4 years, I really enjoyed that too but we had to move to Japan for family reasons. After moving to Japan I started teaching English and French. I enjoy teaching too but most of all I enjoy challenges, moving here was challenging but really interesting. Another challenge that I had been thinking about for about 20 years was renovating a house, so for the last 2 years that is what I have been doing. I bought a 25 year old house and am bringing it to modern standards in terms of comfort and earthquake strength. In my time off I like cycling, hiking and snowboarding in winter. Of course I still enjoy cooking. Hope you like my articles.
