Visit to the Sendai area, wine for helping healing the souls...

We all still have in memories the pictures of devastation, including those of the flooded Sendai airport... Japan gets back to normal at an impressive pace but now we all have the duty to support their amazing nation by our presence and wine is obviously a good vehicle.
With Shoko-san and Onoue-san of Jeroboam we made the journey by train, whose tracks had been closed for a month and which passes just on the edge of the 20 km zone around the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant. Reading an article on the train in the Japan Times of the day made the journey even more emotionnal...
On the agenda of the day, trade lunch for local sommeliers at Hotel Metropole Sendai Restaurant Serenity (sic...) tasting at longtime client Bouchon fine wine house and wine dinner with 28 guests at Restaurant Chef part of a promotion "Sendai Happy Week". Very happy to have had the presence of the editor and journalist of the local bi-monthly magazine Kappo which should report on our dinner.
The smiles on the faces of each guests and restaurants staff said Mission Accomplished !
Foreigners, visitors and expats, what Japan needs now most is YOU.
