Sendai Travel guide
Sendai : Michelin's recommendations
The history of Sendai echoes with the name of Date Masamune, the general who built up the city in the 16C and 17C. Note the Rinno-ji Temple, Hachiman Shrine and the ruins of Sendai Castle, all manifestations of the importance of the daimyo (feudal lords), whose armour you can see exhibited in the city's History Museum. Now recovered from the trauma of the Second World War, Sendai is a lively university city with many parks and gardens. Following the earthquakes and tsunami of March 11 2011 and the ensuing nuclear accidents, we recommend you consult the National Tourist Office of Japan: http://www.jnto.go.jp/eng/index.html
