You can see some access information from the Sendai station in the link above, 

but here are a few tips on coming to the Sendai station:


By plane:

First, there are a few flights per day between Narita (Tokyo) and Sendai, but no flights 

between Haneda (Tokyo) and Sendai. If you can fly to Sendai Airport with reasonable

connection time at Narita, then you can save the fuss of changing trains at Tokyo.

From the Sendai airport, you take the Sendai Airport Transit:



By train:

If you cannot find a good connection to Sendai Airport, then you need to take


From Narita Airport, you can either take JR to Tokyo station, or take Keisei

to Ueno station. Latter is cheaper and quicker, but at Ueno, you need to get outside

once to change to JR Bullet train. At Tokyo station or Ueno station (they are 5 min

apart by Bullet train) you purchase a ticket for Bullet train and head for the Sendai

station. It takes about 1h40min by the express (Hayabusa or Hayate) or 2h15min 

by ‘local’ (Yamabiko). The express trains are reserved seats only.

From the Haneda airport, I suggest you take the Tokyo Mono-Rail (~20 min) to 

Hamamatsucho where you change to JR Yamanote-line (~7min) to get to 

Tokyo Station. After that is the same as above.
