Sendai City

Downtown Sendai Posted by Hello

Sendai City is the capital of Miyagi Prefecture, which is located north of Tokyo. The population of Sendai is approximately 1 million, making it the largest city in the Tohoku region.

City of Trees Posted by Hello

Sendai is sometimes called the “City of Trees.” It really is a beautiful city. Many of the streets within the city are lined with trees. It also seems a little more relaxing than some other larger cities in Japan.

If you do get a chance to travel to this area it would be a good idea to go to Matsushima (see previous posting.)

One of the specialty foods of this area is "gyuutan" (grilled cow tongue.) There are quite a few people that actually love this (no thanks!)

Near Train Station Posted by Hello

It takes about two hours to get to Sendai from Tokyo by train. It’s a great place to visit!
