All reviews small museum loople bus archeological excavations beautiful trees stone stairs during wwii feudal lords well worth the effort steep climb admission fee worth a stop subway station day pass mausoleum forest architecture hill
There are steps! But take your time and enjoy the scenery. It is a series of complexes linked by shady, forest paths. There is also a small museum, which is interesting. The buildings and graves are lovely.

I thank for your contribution and introduction of the museum.Were you able to enjoy it bay an English commentary? The approach surrounded with the trees of cedar can enjoy seasonal scenery. I wait for next arrival.
I will suggest that this stop be early in your day if you are seeing a lot of other sights. LOTS of uphill climbs, but totally worth it. Beautiful trees at the outset. Good exhibit displays and all in English. They even have an audio...More

Thank you for your posting. I recommend you to buy a one-day pass for the bus called “Loople Sendai” and use it. That is an enjoyable way to see the sights of Sendai. If you have a one-day pass, you can get a discount at...More
Excellently rebuilt and reconstructed 17th century mausoleum that was sadly destroyed during the Second World War. There is a very interesting and informative museum on site, free of charge - a must see as it contains original artefacts from the tomb of Masamune Date and...More

Thank you so much for your visit to Zuihoden. I'm very glad you enjoyed it. But I'm sorry we didn't have an English audio guide. We will think about the explanation that everyone is satisfied with.
Having chosen unwisely to do the Loople bus route on a Monday, this was one of the few attractions that was open. However, it was worth the stop and the stairs through beautiful trees. We even enjoyed walking past the school and hearing the young...More

Zuihoden is open except the last day of the year, but in Sendai, the public museums are usually closed on Monday, please be careful.

The Zuihoden is the mausoleum of Date Masamune. Beside its historical importance, the buildungs are really beautiful: dark wood; gold; very colourful decoration. You will find yourself lost into the details.
I only know a handful of easy accessable places in Japan where this style,...More
I was there when there was a festival called 七夕祭. It was a rainy night for me. It’s still enjoyable as they have some candles and lighting to decorate the place. They also have live music performance!!
I'm always interested in best of architecture when I visit new cities in Japan. This one did not disappoint. Very ornate and multi-colored compared to most Japanese temples, well shaded pathways, but there is a small hike up a hill to arrive and quite a...More
