Right, this was the day I was supposed to go from Sendai Station to Matsushima. I wanted so badly to spend the afternoon at Matsushima. Unfortunately I was stuck during last years Golden Week situation where I didn’t think would happen. I get a lot of anxiety in crowded areas and really didn’t think Sendai station would be so packed, I couldn’t block out the noise and felt my body go numb.
Compared to Sapporo where things are a bit more spaced out even on a busy day, this was too much for me and I was going to pass out. Especially, when I could hear kids everywhere. So after some walking around the shops to shake off that nasty feeling of panic, I decided to retreat back to the hotel to rest and then research where I’d go for dinner.
