Beware of Black Bears

As we move into the summer season black bears enter their breeding season and males become aggressive. If you plan on going hiking or mountain climbing, bring a radio or bell with you to make noise and make your presence known to the bears. If you do encounter a bear back away from the sight slowly while paying attention to your surroundings. If you keep a certain distance, a bear will calm down. Please check the “Bear Spotted Map” on the Sendai City’s official website before you go near forests, mountains, or bushes along rivers.
