Voyage Sendai

Sendai, a former feudal town, is the biggest city in Tohoku. Its main street is lined with tall trees, which earned it the nickname of “City of Trees”. Sendai is mostly renowned for its Tanabata festival, which is the most famous in Japan. This star festival is based on a Chinese legend and celebrates the meeting of the Altair star (the cow herder) and the Vega star (the weaving princess) on a bridge that crosses the Milky Way at the beginning of July.
