We made our way to Tokyo station to meet up with Selena for a second day of touring. As fate would have it, we were both on the exact same subway train on a very busy morning commute. The next task was to find the right platform for the train heading to Sendai. The train schedules can be a bit tricky to decipher so it was very nice having Selena there to fill in the blanks. We already had our tickets so we made our way up to track 23 and didn’t have long to wait for our train to depart.
When we were planning our trip we had to make the decision on whether to get a rail pass for the standard car or upgrade to the green car. Sight unseen we chose the green car and think it was a good decision. The green cars are very modern, spacious and quite comfortable.
The train trip north passed very quickly and in less than 2 hours we arrived in Sendai, which is the capital city of Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, and the largest city in the Tōhoku (North) region, and the second largest city north of Tokyo.
