Sendai metro is running regularly though with less frequency. The last few stops, which goes closer to the coastline, are however still out of reach. So in the station called Dainohara, which is currently the last stop, all the passengers get off and continue their way home using free bus. When you get off at Dainohara station, almost every one heads for the same direction to queue. The queue quickly becomes long enough to have 200 people waiting in line to make their way home. Considering this is the biggest city in the region, the fact that the transportation is causing such a long wait is definitely a rare sight in Japan and reminds me of the situation.
