Shinkansen to Sendai

Forth time in Japan but first time a little further out than Tokyo. Took the bullet train up north to Sendai for a lecture and also doctors expo for paediatric products. Was a smooth ride :) The hotel in the center of the city was amazing and served food with a fantastic setup on the top floor.

Early morning I had 3 hours time so went jogging up in the mountains to look at castle ruins and a famous shrine. Very beautiful here and so calm! But suuuper sweaty, air 100% humid and around 30 degrees. Was soaking after coming back. Quick shower and off to the expo.

First time on a Japanese bullet train
Passed this infamous place, Fukushima 
Sendai at night, too bad it was raining. View would have been fantastic otherwise from the 35th floor

 Check in with style
 A reflection right out of Mordor...Looks so much like Saurons all watching eye! 
Not made of sugar
 No cars, no people...Saturday morning feels like a ghost town. Spirited away?
