Sendai is one of the most prominent cities in Tohoku District and was planned and constructed in the Keicho period (1596-1614) by Masamune Date. The citys plan has survived for 400 years up to the present and the present scenery of the urban area has developed on the basis of the land arrangement of the Edo period. Sendai today boasts many different kinds of festivals and annual events. Some, such as the Sendai Tanabata Festival, the Osaki Hachimangu annual celebration, and the Donto Festival, have their roots in tradition, while others, such as Sendai Pageant of Starlight and the Michinoku YOSAKOI, have been newly created as contemporary urban city festivals, all of them giving a colorful charm to Sendais seasons.
