Zuihoden Mausoleum - Review

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.

  • Truly beautiful architecture, and a wonderful untouched natural environment. Key explanations were available in both English and Japanese. It was quite beautiful in summer, and I'm told it's also definitely worth seeing in autumn.

  • Impressive mausoleum of the Date family who ruled from Sendai. Sadly mostly reconstructions due to Japan's history. Nice collection of artefacts in the museum.

  • This place is so awesome, especially who like history about Date Masamune. The mausoleum is very elaborate and luxurious. There are 2 other mausoleums for Date Terumune and Date Tadamune. The problem is only the location which is a bit far from the nearest train station. The last Bus schedule is only till 4 pm.

  • It’s appropriate that one of the biggest tourist attractions in the city would be the resting place of important historical figure, Date Masamune. A man known for being cool and stylish centuries before hipsters were a thing, it’s not surprising that his mausoleum is decked out with brilliant colors on a starkly contrasting black base.
