When you arrive at the Sendai station, you should find platfrom #9 and #10 to take a local train (Senseki line). The platfroms are located on an underground floor. You can download a very good map of Sendai station from here. Platform #9 and #10 are located at the right in the bottom of the map. From Matsushima-Kaigan station to Hotel Taikanso, you can take a shuttle bus provided by Hotel Taikanso. On July 16 and July 17, the bus leaves at: 8:40, 9:10, 9:40, 10:10, 10:40, 11:10, 11:40, 12:40, 13:40, 14:40, 15:10, 15:40, 16:10, 16:40, 17:10, 17:40, 18:05, 18:33, 19:03, 19:40, and 20:03. To catch the last bus (20:03), you should take the train deperting at 19:23 from the Sendai station. If you arrive at the Matsushima-Kaigan station after 20:03, you had better take a taxi to the hotel. It might be possible to walk to the hotel (15 minutes walk), but we do not recommend because there is a steep slope to the hotel.
