For a limited time, the SENDAI Tourist Information Desk is offering FREE guided walking tours in Sendai's downtown shopping districts! The tour, which normally costs 1000 yen, is a trial run for the seven new volunteer English-speaking guides who have been training since April. During the 90-minute tour, they will take you through Sendai's must-see shopping areas, urban temples and shrines, retro Japanese yokocho alleyways, century-old stores, and much more!
