    He didn't put out his cigars on your tongue? Sounds like a great father.

    Oh no, that appendage was occupied. Why do you think his neck was in easy reach?

    I think we can safely say that this school thread has veered wildly off course...

    Back on topic... Sendai is a decent city - just like pretty much every other large city in Japan, except its a bit far north for people not used to cool winters. It doesn't get that much snow compared to cities further west or east. Fair warning for this info, I don't live in Sendai, but I visit friends in/near Sendai fairly often. Sendai city is separate from the rest of Miyagi in terms of JET - its a designated city, so its under, but separate.

    I do know that they just opened a new subway line (two subway lines now.) The subways are the most expensive in Japan, but there's also JR surface rail as well, and a lot of buses. It's well connected to the rest of the country via Shink and plane.

    There's a bunch of festivals I've gone to, like the Jazz Festival in the fall, Yosakoi, and Classical music festivals. The Tanabata season is pretty good, too. There's easy access to several ski areas in the local mountains if winter sports are your thing.

    Shopping is fine - there's a Yodobashi, Labi, and some smaller electronics stores, but it's not very large/impressive compared to every other Bic/Yodobashi/small electronics districts I've been to.

    There's a good variety of restaurants - same as you'd fine in any medium/large Japanese city. Local specialties are beef tongue (pretty good) and sasakamaboko (bamboo leaf shaped fish cakes) and Sendai beef (local wa-gyuu.)

    Thank you to everyone who has given me on topic information and PM'ed me. It's always nice to know stuff about where you are going to live for the foreseeable future.

    I remember in the good ol days before this place got all topsy-turvy there were people here would actually pick up bits of unrelated thread and put them elsewhere.

    Yeah guys, come on. If Mod is really dead, we need to self-regulate better.

    Do you really want to be so cruel to the mentally handicapped?

    From the videos I've seen on the internetz, I'd say Sendai is close to the ocean.
    Like really close.

    Any current Sendai residents or, even better, current JETs in Sendai willing to drop me a line via PM? I have a few questions I would really appreciate any advice you may have on!
