About Sendai

Sendai is the largest city in the Tohoku region of Japan’s Honshu island.
The modern city was founded around the year 1600 by Date Masamune, one of feudal Japan’s most powerful lords. Many of the city’s tourist attractions are related to Masamune and his family. Sendai is comfortable and pleasant, very green — in fact they call it “Mori no Miyako, “Forest City”. The main avenues around the city are wide and tree-lined, giving it an almost European feel.
Of course Sendai was the largest major town affected by the earthquake and tsunami in March 2011. It will take some time for the the town and surrounding coastal areas to recover from such a catastrophe which left many people homeless, and utilities and infrastructure damaged.
Less than an hour northeast of the city centre lies the town of Matsushima, whose bay is dotted by pine-clad islets and is known for one of Japan’s three most scenic views.
