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.

  • Historical tomb of the Date clan lords! Very intricate and colorful carvings on the buildings! Situated on top of a hill, so be prepared for a bit of an ‘ upwards’ battle! It’s worth it! Access by the loop bus from Sendai station( hop on/off)

  • One of the main attractions in Sendai. The area is serene and peaceful. You can access this place by loople bus. It takes around 600 yen to go inside the visit the tomb of the former warlord of Sendai. You'd have to take several steps to reach on top.

  • Amazing place with an even more amazing atmosphere. It is recommended that you dont rush but spend a bit more time reading up on the history and looking at the details because there's a lot of both. The Zuihoden has an incredible display of japanese craftsmanship and highly recommended by me.

  • 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.

  • Great historical mausoleum of the Samurai Lord Date Masamune; great place to visit if you're in Sendai City
