Sendai is also home to the remains of a historic castle and the largest statue of the Shinto goddess Nyoirin Kannon in Japan. It’s home to one of the biggest traditional shopping arcades I’ve ever seen – and to lots of great restaurants serving a variety of fare, in the case that whale isn’t your thing.
If you’re ever in Japan, I recommend a visit to Sendai if you can make it happen. Mrs. Animal and I hope to come back some time when we have more than a weekend to spend. Photos follow – enjoy!
Thanks as always to Pirate’s Cove for the Rule Five links!
On this Saturday just past, my own dear Mrs. Animal and I moved from our temporary lodgings in Kinshicho over to the western Tokyo suburb of Akishima, where this job of work begins. Yesterday we traveled to the mountain town of Takao, named for the mountain at the foot of which it resides. It’s a beautiful area, and a great place to spend a beautiful Sunday. Photography follows. Enjoy!
Week Two for this stunning redhead.
