It’s that time again…my favorite time of year in Sendai. Nice, cool, jacket weather…clear skies…leaves are about to change colors…no complaints. Wait! Only one complaint… It looks like the "street飲み" season is coming to an end. Forget the loud, smokey, crowded bars. There’s nothing better than grabbing a cold, convenience store brew and posting up on a good sidewalk at night. The people watching alone is worth it! But now the weather is changing and it’s just getting a bit too cold… Autumn is great…but next spring won’t come soon enough! Peace. /仙台インストラクターStephen M.
