At Sendai Airport

 We had lunch at one of the restaurants inside the airport. This boat model was about a meter high. It is the San Juan Bautista, built by the local daimyo in 1613.
 Here is Tsubasa watching the planes taking off. He seemed to really enjoy this and later when we offered to buy him a toy, he wanted a set with an airplane and the ground equipment.
 In the distance you can see the elevated tracks for the train the we rode on.
 This is looking toward the ocean, the direction from which the tsunami came.
 The ocean is visible behind the tree line. There used to be many trees along here but many of them were pulled out by the tsunami.
Inside the airport the had a real airplane on display. Tsubasa was interested but I think it was too small to be fascinating for him
