I would like to take a day trip to either Yamadera or Hiraizumi around Oct 26. Which one do you think it's a must see and worth going? I will have a JR east pass. We are 2 adults and love temples, nature, and historical thing.
I'm in Sendai for 2 days and then will stay at Matshushima. Prior to Sendai, I've already spent quite few days in different Onsen area. Therefore, only leave me the choices of Yamadera or Hiraizumi. We hope to spend half to full day for this day trip and then back to Sendai around 6-7pm in the evening. Please let me know what you think iand your preferences and how easy to take the train to go there.
Many thanks in advance!
