Build bridges in Sendai
Be a part of the thriving Dallas-Sendai friendship. You’ll meet VIPs such as Sendai Mayor Emiko Okuyama and Chairman Shogo Kamei of Kamei Corporation, dine with citizens’ groups, tour areas affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, and learn Japanese traditions from local experts.
Have a taste of Tohoku
The Tohoku region, where Sendai is located, is home to delicious food and drink. You’ll learn how sasakama-boko (a local seafood specialty) is made, tour the Kirin Beer Brewery, and try your hand at making soba (buckwheat) noodles.
Get away for a day
Choose your day trip: a relaxing mountain getaway or a scenic coastal tour. Travel to the mountains of Yamagata to visit Yamadera Temple, Sakunami Onsen (hot spring), and the Nikka Whiskey Distillery; or take a sightseeing boat to Matsushima, considered one of the most beautiful places in Japan.
See the sights in Tokyo
After taking the shinkansen (bullet train) from Sendai to Tokyo, you’ll experience the excitement of the largest city in the world! Stay in the historic Asakusa district, ascend the Tokyo Sky Tree (the tallest structure in Japan!), cruise the Sumida River, and more.
