During May, when Sendai's trees were sprouting their fresh green leaves, we went to visit the city to research our Sendai special report, and found a city blessed with fine ingredients from the sea and the surrounding mountains in Miyagi Prefecture. There was no lack of delicious food, and here is just a selection of the great eating on offer.

Surrounded by many areas of historical interest and natural beauty, Sendai could be called the gateway to the Tohoku region. By basing yourself in one of Sendai's many reasonably priced hotels, you can enjoy a fun daytrips out to the surrounding area.

In the middle of May, JAPANiCAN.com staff members went and stayed in the center of Sendai to try these daytrips firsthand. The first trip was to Matsushima - one of Japan's Three Scenic Wonders, which was awarded a three-star rating in the Michelin 2009 Green Guide Japan for its natural beauty - and Shiogama, where you can try the seafood fresh from the fishing harbors on the Sanriku-kaigan Coast. The second trip was to Yamadera ("Mountain Temple") in neighboring Yamagata Prefecture, which is reached by climbing up 1,015 steps and commands excellent views. Check out our firsthand reports!
