Thread: Sendai - tell me all about it!

    Default Sendai - tell me all about it!

    I may be offered a job in Sendai. I'd love some information from people living in the city and the region. I've googled about it, but nothing beats insider advice.

    Exactly the same as every other Japanese city with around 1-2 million people living in it. Has everything you need, quite geographically isolated though.

    Sendai is about a 2 hour train ride from Tokyo. There are a fair amount of foreigners studying and working as ALTs in the city. Miyagi is beautiful, there will be lots to do and see.

    Sendai is the best city in Japan. Not isolated. 90 minutes from Ueno Station by shinkanesen. 7500 yen flights to Osaka on Peach (1 hour).

    so its best quality is its easy to go somewhere else? Hardly a ringing endorsement.

    I thought that was the whole point of Japan though, to get here and go somewhere else?

    Sendai

    Good - has both an apple store and a disney store.

    Bad - Tohoku women are fatter than their Kanto counterparts.

    Sendai has craft beer... I really don't pay attention to anything other than that when judging a city.
