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

  • 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.

  • Thanks to Taichi, one of the volunteer guides, who was very kind and who took time explaining to me the story of the shrine and many interesting facts about Sendai.

  • A piece of history of sendai. Interesting story behind.

  • Beautiful small forest on the hill with richness of history value from Date Masamune, previous Daimyo/ lord of Tohoku area. You will enjoy both the scenery and the story. Not so steep hill but wearing casual shoes there is better than a high heels I guess.

  • One of the landmarks in Sendai. As the resting place of Date Masamume, founder of Sendai, this mausoleum is very pretty. The surrounding area is full of greenery, perfect for a small walk.
