Sendai, the capital of Miyagi prefecture, is known for being a green city with lots of vegetation. For example, the city center has a long covered shopping arcade that is lined with small trees. The staple dish in Sendai is the gyutan (beef tongue). The grilled thin slices of gyutan are typically flavored with salt or sauce and the dish is well accompanied with a glass of cold Japanese beer.
Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese. View all posts by Gaijin San
