    The observation decks of the SS30 and AER Buildings
    A nice way to get a view of all of Sendai. On a nice day, one can see to the ocean on the east side, the Dai-Kannon statue on the north, and the mountains to the west.

    The mausoleum of Date Masamune (Sendai's central historical figure) and his heirs. The original was bombed out during WWII, but the restorations are beautifully done. There are three main mausoleums and a museum. Most of the displays are in Japanese, but there is a brochure in English that explains the highlights.

    An inexpensive way to see most of the major sights of the city. For 600 yen, you can travel around on a quaint trolley-style bus. Most of the info is in Japanese, but there is enough English to understand where you are going (Korean as well).

    This actually reminded me of the Beauty & the Beast. Hopefully, the Japanese won't take offense :P.

    Dec. 12-31: Pageant of Starlight
    The zelkova trees along Jozenji-dori are lit up with thousands of lights. A beautiful wintertime walk.
