Sendai Japan

Sendai is one of the Seven Major Cities in Japan, along with Tokyo (refer to #036), Osaka (refer to #037), Nagoya (refer to #058), Sapporo (refer to #060), Hiroshima (refer to #076), and Fukuoka (refer to #133). It has the largest population in the Tohoku Region and belongs to Miyagi Prefecture.

Since this city boasts lots of forest areas, it is often called "Mori-no-Miyako". The Japanese word "mori" is "forest" in English, "no" is "of", and "miyako" is "city", respectively. So, this nickname means "City of Trees".
