About Zuihoden Mausoleum, Sendai-shi

Masumune Date founded Sendai, so it is fitting that Sendai is where he was laid to rest, here in this mausoleum. Though the building you see today is not the original work of beauty (burned down in WWII), the Momoyama architectural traditions that went into the original's making have been preserved in this recreation. The grounds, which are shaded by great cedar trees, are serene, and also hold the mausoleums of the second and third of the clan - Tadamune and Tsunamune. The accompanying museum here has burial artefacts on display, portraits and relics of the rulers, and a documentary movie playing on a loop. On weekends, there are free guided tours.

Zuihoden Mausoleum, Sendai-shi Reviews

  • This is worth the entrance fee especially when cherry blossoms are in flower. We were initially underwhelmed but as we progressed through the forest past the public toilets the experience became more magical. The lovey old trees perched majestically around the reconstructed mausoleums of the sons. There are many stairs but they are not overly steep.there are bamboo walking sticks free to use if you so need. Taxis were waiting at bottom of hill for those too relaxed or exhausted to walk home. Plenty of English information provided on sign posts throughout. One of the nicest places in Sendai.

  • Amazing experience, we went in the middle of winter and it was snowing. There is a bit of a climb to get to the buildings, but well worth it imo. Everything is exquisite, and there is an interactive area at the beginning of the circuit

  • Nice temple with great colours. Bit of a walk up the hill from the station, but manageable for most people with basic level of fitness.

  • So far distant (15 min) from nearest subway station to walk, and too steep big ladder to climb to the cemetery. But the history and architecture art there were so beautiful. So shame that these original building has been completely destroyed during world war and the current one was just the renovation.

  • Interesting shrines to Japanese rulers from the Sendai area. Reconstructed after the war but still very beautiful. The signs are translated to English and offer some interesting history.
