Overview

In this tour, we will visit the most popular sightseeing spots in Sendai, "the City of Trees."
The city was founded by Date Masamune, one of the most famous samurai.
We will visit Sendai Castle Site, Zuihoden Mausoleum, and Osaki Hachimangu Shrine.
They are all related to Date Masamune, and you will learn samurai culture in northern Japan.

What to Expect

By visiting famous sightseeing spots, you can feel the essence of Japanese history, especially samurai era.

Sendai Castle was built in 1600 by Date Masamune, a famous feudal lord.
Though the main buildings were demolished a long ago, some structures like stone walls still remain.

Zuihoden is the mausoleum of Date Masamune.
The building is beautifully decorated with gold leaf, Japanese lacquer, and exquisite sculptures.
Although the original building was burnt down by an air raid in 1945, it was restored in 1979.

Osaki Hachimangu Shrine was built in 1607. This is also the legacy of Date Masamune.
It is one of the most gorgeous shrines in Tohoku(north-eastern Japan) region, and designated as a national treasure.

In this tour, you can also enjoy Sendai's local cuisines, such as Gyutan (grilled beef tongue) and Zunda Mochi (rice cake topped with sweet soybean paste).
