Famed for its abundance of zelkova trees and general verdure, the city also offers a superb culinary scene, local crafts, and museums.

Sendai is the capital city of Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, and the largest city in the Tohoku region. The city was founded in 1600 by the daimyo Date Masamune, and is nicknamed the City of Trees; there are about 60 zelkova trees on Jozenji Street and Aoba Streets. In the summer, the Sendai Tanabata Festival, the largest Tanabata festival in Japan, is held.

Other attractions include a shrine, a museum, and the Aobayama hill, which affords a panoramic view of the city.
