More old pictures of Sendai

 Another small pond near my old university. The topology of this area consists of a mish-mash of low hills and steep-sided valleys. As the area has been built up, many of the deeper valleys which contained natural ponds at the bottom have been turned into man-made reservoirs. In the above picture notice the large private homes in the background. They are in an area where the hilltops were pushed into the valleys so the land could be flattened. This particular development contains many high end homes.
This is either rental apartments or condos, I am not sure which. However, the landscaping is typical. Most large apartment buildings have gardens, large or small depending on the amount of land available.
