Accommodation needed in Sendai, Early July

Notice: I am moving to Sendai in late June to take up a position at Tohoku University and will need temporary accommodation (preferably in/near the city centre) until I rent a flat there. Could anyone suggest (or, better still, provide me with) inexpensive accommodation (for the period of 1 to 2 weeks) in Sendai? I am interested in any type of accomodation, such as share accomodation (I speak Japanese and Turkish) or house/flat-sitting.
