Sendai station is large but easy to navigate with very clear signs. It has a tourist information centre and an excellent range of shops including plenty of cafes that we enjoyed browsing in while waiting for the train.

If you have time before getting on the trains, enjoy walking around the S-PAL shopping mall connected to the station. Very nice, as there are lots of local speciality stores, especially the restaurants and souvenir shops. For more on Sendai, check hiddenjapanguide.com
