I only visited Fukushima once. Comparing to other large and capital cities in Tohoku Region, Fukushima City is not in my Top Ranks (Aomori, Akita, etc), however the location is much nearer to Tokyo. I visited Nihommatsu Chochin Matsuri which was less than 10 train stops away from Fukushima. While it was difficult to find hotels there, Fukushima is actually the best alternative for the visitors. It was also a quiet city, good feelings when I was there. The disadvantage was you would not be able to find good food in certain hours and locations.
A compact size of Tokyo. I would say the city could probably be a capital city of southern Tohoku area. The food, specially ox tongue, is so mouthwatering and delicious. Shopping is one of the thing that you would enjoy doing here, right next to Sendai station with lots of designer's brand stores. We got a rare handbag here in Sendai store while it's almost impossible to get one in Tokyo or other big cities.
It is easy and fast to reach Morioka by Shinkansen train from Tokyo and therefore a convenient start point for visiting many tourist attractions in Tohoku region.
This was a great base to travel through the Tohoku region after the tsunami. The people in this area are very friendly and helpful.
Lack of attractions, what few there were had no English descriptions, service was poorer than other prefectures in Tohoku, lack of variety in places to eat. However, fantastic coffee was found at Tsuki Cafe!
Sendai City is famous for its beef tongue and seafood (oyster especially). The beautiful Mastushima as well as onsen towns are nearby. A lovely place to visit and a pit stop to other cities in Tohoku.
Sendai is a great "base of operations" for a visit to the Tohoku area in Japan. If this is your first trip to the country, make sure to visit Tokyo and Kyoto and enjoy all that those two great cities have to offer first, but if you have already done that or feel like something a little different, then Sendai is a good option. Situated one hour and a half shinkansen ride from Tokyo, Tohoku has mountain trails (like in Zao Onsen), some of the most beautiful landscapes in Japan (such as Matsushima) and amazing places "off the beaten track" such as Yamadera, Tono Valley or Hiraizumi. Sendai itself deserves one or two days of quiet walks and getting in touch with the Japanese way of life. Although it is a big city with almost one million people, the pace of life is gentler here and you will be able to enjoy the local culture (including Onsen and Izakaya life and the well known local cuisine.
I wish I could have spent more than four nights. Partly because I dont want to rush and try and do 'everything' at once, and get tired and then can't be bothered.. Sendai is a great compact city, with a great 'loople' bus service. Things were a little further away than I thought so this was handy, plus I get lost quite easily. Tohoku love their arts and crafts and they were proudly on display to see and purchase in Sendai, which I particularly like. I wanted to go to Fukushima-shi for a day, as it is only about 30 mins away, but I didnt get around to it this time. There was LOTS I didnt see this trip, but I will catch up on them next trip :)
A regional center (largest city in Tohoku) with lots of big shops and restaurants (less crowded compared to Tokyo). Many fantastic sights - cultural historical and natural, to visit on day trips by train.
Vibrant city with some good tourist sites to visit, plenty of shopping options and heaps of good restaurants and eateries to choose from. Great place to base yourself and travel on the JR Shinkansen to other places in Tohoku. There are regular Shinkansen services to Tokyo (only 1.5hrs away). I enjoyed my stay in Sendai.

My favourite accommodation of my whole trip! Very modern hotel across the road from Sendai station. I booked a single room which was HUGE - not just by Japanese standards! And the bath was....MASSIVE! I also adored the breakfast in the restaurant. Lovely staff and the best selection of Japanese foods (as well as western breakfast options), which proudly used local Tohoku ingredients everyday. An extra nice touch was the breakfast 'desserts', such as sakura mochi and soba, and other traditional Japanese sweets.

You probably aren't going all the way to the northern Tohoku just to watch television, but if you are, then you're in luck. There is an outrageously large television in each of the rooms. As far as normal hotels in Japan go, this is probably right there with the rest of them until you see the television, which you will, because it's hilariously out of proportion to the size of the room.

We stayed for one night during our Tohoku trip and it was a wonderful experience. The Minpaku is located near the main attractions of Hirauzimi and it offers a comfortable japanese style room with tatami. The breakfast was great, and the owners were extremely kind during our stay (they gave as a free pass to a nearby onsen!). Wish we could have stayed longer.

Staff and friendly and explained everything we needed to do to get to our room and to organise our breakfast. The room was gorgeous and extremely clean and comfortable. We had a hire car and assign as we drove in we were directed by a uniformed parking attendant where we had to go and what to do. Overall a wonderful experience that made our stay in Sendai all the more pleasant.

5-star service, 5-star view from room overlooking sea and pool. Very big room but surprisingly no bath tub (not that it mattered to me). During check in, reception told me dinner cost 9000 yen and needed to be booked in advance. I did not want that and was given very help advice on where to dine.
