With over 35 years of experience in the aviation industry, mostly in management roles with Air New Zealand’s Japan Office, I joined Rishworth in April 2008. I am primarily focused on assisting you whilst attending Screenings and once on contract, and facilitating communications with you and the airline. It is a privilege and a pleasure using my knowledge and experience to assist you. In my spare time I enjoy meeting with Mr.Green (Golf) - a difficult sport!​

Living and working in Sendai, Japan

The modern city of Sendai is the largest city in the Tohoku Region, and one of Japan’s 15 largest cities. With a population of about 1 million, Sendai is known for being a lively regional city, with an impressive nightlife.

Sendai is nicknamed ‘City of Trees’ due to the zelkova trees that line the streets. In winter, these trees are decorated with thousands of lights, for the Pageant of Starlight. In the summer, the Sendai Tanabata Festival is held, when the sky is lit up with fireworks, and the streets are decorated with large colourful streamers.

Getting around is easy in Sendai with options for travelling by subway, bus, or even on foot, due to the compact city centre. If you feel like getting out of the city, Sendai is only a one and a half hour train ride from Tokyo on the bullet train, and a one hour flight from Osaka.

Sendai has a humid subtropical climate, with neither the very hot summers of Tokyo nor the snowbound winters of Sapporo. Winters are cool and dry with an average temperature of  1.5 °C (34.7 °F), and summers warm with an average 24.1 °C (75.4 °F) temperature.

On your days off, visit the Sendai City Museum, tour the Miyagikyo Distillery where the ‘father of whiskey’ Nikka Whisky is made, or relax in one of the surrounding hot springs.
