This Sendai area is rich in traditional crafts, and nine skilled artisans have their workshops right here in the Akiu Traditional Crafts Village, making this a highly recommended destination for visitors interested in Japanese indigo dyeing, lacquerware, kokeshi dolls, traditional spinning tops (koma), bog-wood art, and other Japanese crafts. Many of the artisans offer hands-on workshops, so you can learn directly from a master and also have a unique souvenir to bring home. Kokeshi doll painting and other hands-on workshops require advance reservations.
