When you come to Sendai, and if you are tired of feeling cramped staying in a small hotel room in the center of the city, there's one place you can enjoy space not-so-far-away from JR Sendai Station. Just a 20-minute car ride away from JR Sendai Station, Best Western Hotel Sendai provides you with a 35㎡-room with a great view of the city at a reasonable price (6,500 to 10,000 yen per night). It has a swimming pool, spa and fitness club along with the adjacent Sendai Hills Golf Club course. However, be prepared for this: When you arrive at the hotel, you will find a huge, tall statue of Sendai Dai-Kannon (goddess of mercy) standing next to the hotel waiting for you. And if you are lucky (or unlucky), when you open the windows of your room, the statue might be staring at you...up close! You can see more photos of the statue here.

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
