    I'm nowhere near Miyagi, but I was in Sendai for Golden week. You have this: Matsushima - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    ...Which I think is pretty cool.

    Everytime I start thinking, 'naw, this isn't so bad' -- I go to street view on google. Seriously, do street view of Tome on google -- boonies x20!

    I wonder if it's part of your contract to help out with the rice harvest?

    I'll be in Miyagi, just outside of Sendai. I lived in Sendai for a year so if you have any questions about the city I could probably answer them. For you Kurihara and Tome kids, take solace in the fact that Furukawa is a pretty happening place if you know where to go.

    Woah, sorry, just realized that was probably way too vague! I'm not a master of the northern Miyagi area but the three biggest cities around Tome and Kurihara are Ishinomaki, Furukawa, and Ichinoseki. I've never been to Ichinoseki (probably 30-40 minutes north of you guys?) but Furukawa has some cool places. I've also heard some really good things about Ishinomaki!

    edit: upon further inspection, Tome has a website in English, 30 dentists, 45 medical facilities, and what seems to be a kajillion schools. I think you'll be okay!

    HeyMonkey, I'm assuming you've seen the city website? It looks awesome to me! I'm a total old lady so I get that other people might not be as excited as I am about say, the hydrangea festival (lol), but all the temples! The parks! The BEEF FESTIVAL that will take place like two weeks after we all arrive! (I'd be jealous, but I have a sake festival, so it evens out )

    HeyMonkey, dude, chill out. You have a McDonald's, Mos Burger, game center, and shopping center. I mean there you go, your own little bottled-up Sendai right there! Before you get too down and start reading all this negative material, the girl whose blog you linked to actually seemed to be having a pretty good time. And awwww look at how cute the apartment I'm assuming you'll be living in is!
