Why don't you go to play in the Tohoku region where you can enjoy the four seasons of Japan rather than going to overseas?
We will introduce a recommended plan for a 1 night and 2 days in Sendai where you would be charmed with including stylish and photogenic cafés, and delicious food shops.

[1st day] 11:15 Arrival at Sendai Station

It takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes to Sendai Station from Tokyo by Tohoku Shinkansen.
As it arrives in about 1 and half hours, the train ride was so short.
If you want to be active from the morning, you can take overnight buses and it is economical.
There is an airport in Sendai, so you can also take airplane.
If your schedule is fixed, you can use early booking discount which can be also economical.

Miyagi is famous for Kokeshi, which greet you at the station.

11:30 Inside Sendai Station is a treasure trove of foods

As walking inside of Sendai Station, you see a collection of famous gourmet foods of Sendai.
There are many shops on beef tongue street, sushi street and zunda bath, but we chose "Abe Kamaboko no Hyotanage" because we can eat and walk with its food.
Until recently, its hyotanage could only be bouhgt at the flagship store, but now it is easier to eat some because there is a shop just next to the 2nd floor ticket gate in Sendai Station.
It is kamaboko (fish cake) in a fluffy dough and can be eaten as a snack.
We also enjoyed zunda shake and zunda mochi at Zunda Saryo. Both are Sendai specialty.

15:00 A break at a stylish café near the station

"THE MARK" is a popular café in Sendai
About 10 minutes walk from Sendai Station.
There is a select shop next to the café, so you can have a drink while shopping.
There are so many items in pink! Cups, wall and even tables are pink, so it's fun to take photos there.
We ordered a coffee and smoothie! Monthly limited drinks are photogenic, so keep your eyes on.

18:00 Sparkling and illusory! To the illumination representing Sendai.

There is an illumination event held every December using several hundred thousands of LED at the lined zelkova trees on Jozenjidori. 
It is a bit of distance from Sendai Station, but because there are many shops along the way, we recommend to walk there.
There are three performances of turning lights off at 1 minutes before 6, 7 and 8 o'clock at night.
Music was played and lights were turned off, and when lights were on again, it was impressive. 
Please aim to be there around these time.

Lighting places: Jozenji Temple, Citizens’ Square, Kotodai-Koen
Lighting time 17:30-22:00 (scheduled)

19:00 Superb! Let's have a famous hot pot in Sendai on a cold day.

"Sake Sumi Sakana Sasaki" is very closed to the illumination event
There are a counter and 2 tables.
It is not so expensive, so we can assure that you can dine here even when dining alone.
You can have seafood, sake and the most wanted seri (Japanese parsley) hot pot.
It was so delicious that we want to go back.

[2nd day] 11:30 Experience Sasakama making

You can have a tour as well as experiencing making sasakama (fish cake) at the factory of "Kamaboko no Kanezaki" which represent Sendai! It takes about 30 minutes by car, so we recommend to rent a car when visiting here.
You will need to make a phone reservation for a sasakama making experience.
Because it was on a weekday, we could make a reservation on the day before, but we recommend to make a reservation in advance.

15:00 Snack time! To a café for doughnuts that are too cute to eat

It is located a 5 minutes walk from Atagobashi Station on Namboku Line of Sendai City Subway
Because we rented a car, it took about 20 minutes from the sasakama factory.
As we went inside the shop, we were comforted by staff's smile, and saw lines of doughnuts.
You can purchase them for take out, so it is suitable for a small gift.
Doughnuts were not only cure but had a good chewy texture and delicious!
