Sendai was one of the most beautiful cities in Japan: modern, set in natural grandeur near mountains and sea. Known as the City of Trees, it housed six universities, modern scientific research institutes; was known for its vibrant cultural life, colorful history, and local cuisine (delicacies: calf’s tongue, world-class seafood).
