Living in Sendai

Sendai is one of Japan's 14 major cities with more than one million in population. It is known as "Mori no Miyako" (City of Trees) for it is surrounded by lush greenery, and its major streets are lined with trees. Sendai is often referred, too, as an "Academic City" since it has many universities and colleges. Due to the many students living in Sendai, the city center is full of shops which cater to young peoples' tastes for food, fashion and entertainment.

The bustling city has many libraries, museums, a philharmonic orchestra, many public athletic facilities and four major professional sports teams -- the Rakuten Golden Eagles pro baseball team, the Sendai Velgata pro soccer team, the Sendai 89ers pro basketball team, and the Sendai Belle Fille women's pro volleyball team. Major concerts also frequently come to Sendai.

Students who choose Sendai University, can combine excellent academics with a full and enjoyable lifestyle in both vibrant Sendai and peaceful Shibata-City where the campus is located.
