Places to stay near Sendai  (5 Answers)

My mother is originally from the Sendai area (Shiogama) and the area was ravaged by the tsunami. She would like to visit her sister in the next year. I've heard that finding a place to stay is difficult/expensive because of the rebuilding. Staying with her sister is not a possibility. Any ideas of longterm apts or rentals?

Map of bus routes throughout Sendai  (5 Answers)


I am trying to figure out the bus system in Sendai. There are a few places that have a website describing how you can get there from Sendai station, but it would be much easier for me if I would simply see all routes on a map of Sendai, to have som idea which routes are best to get from A to B (I can't read Japanese so that is probably why I can't find it)

I plan on using busses for commuting so I can't always take the Loople,and it seems the subway won't be of much use to me.

So does anyone know where I can find such a map?

Many thanks!

Is it possible to rent a bicycle for a few weeks in Sendai, Japan?  (4 Answers)

Hello everyone I am planning to spend a few weeks in Sendai, Miyagi-ken, in Japan, and I was wondering if it is possible to rent a bicycle, which would give me some more freedom to explore the city and its surroundings. Is it also true that you cannot just park your bicycle wherever you want, that you need to use designated parking lots for bicycles? (I am used to riding bicycles in cities, but I am a (continental) European so I'm used to driving on the right side.) All suggestions or ideas are welcome!

What's it like?  (7 Answers)

Okay, so I know it's a broad question, but what is Sendai like to live in? I'm moving there for a year or more in July and don't have any insider information as such. Particularly just whether people enjoy it there? What's the general standard of living etc? Sorry for being so broad but i'm asking as a total Sendai novice!
