Hmmm there might have been, I'm not sure. I only checked / compared using Google flights, and even then only to Tokyo. You're right that Sendai would've been a more logical base to visit zao onsen from, but I guess I just wanted to spend a few days in Tokyo anyway 🤣
Ubah gaya hidup bro. My wife and I don't own cars (bus/train everywhere), don't drink don't smoke don't buy branded goods, all so that we can spend our extra money on holidays instead.
I like JAL but always co-share with MAS which I dun like.
I feel Thai and Cathay give better value for flights from Penang to Japan.
Transit hours are shorter, so too are flight duration.
Better choice of food on board too.
At Sendai, suggest you try
1. Harakomeshi - salmon belly
2. Tsudasengyoten - Table top BBQ
