Still scarred by the massive earthquake of 3/11, Sendai is open for tourism and all of the major sights are open for visitors. Though minor in comparison to Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima, and other major tourist cities, the relaxed atmosphere, good food and friendly people make Sendai a pleasant place to visit. Less accustomed to foreigners than other parts of Japan, as a Westerner, you may catch more glances than you are used to. Local specialties include beef tongue, gyoza, and tripe hot pot and a range of seafood. Vegetarians will have to work a little harder to find a meal here than they do in other parts of the country.
Sendai, known as "City of Trees", is situated in northern east of Japan. The city was founded in early 1600s, by a feudal lord Date Masamune, shown in this postcard.
The beef tongue is so delicious.
