This famous Sendai shrine dedicated to the god of war can be found at the end of a long stairway leading between tall hinoki cypress trees under several torii gates. The main hall is freshly renovated and has splendid dragon and tiger decorations. To make...More

Fabulous site that as well as gorgeous architecture and location is also a way to experience typical Japanese shrine culture. You could well be the only "foreigner" here. Also various festivals throughout the year.

We found this little shrine by accident and are so glad we did. A great place to take a break--love the atmosphere, and strongly recommend it to anyone who enjoys visiting shrines.

This is a nice walk from the bus stop to the shrine. Enjoyed a good walk up the long staircase to the shrine and enjoyed the nature of beauty.

The temple was built by Date Masamune. It's a little bit far from the other touristic places. If you have time you can go, but don't expect a lot, it's seems like any other temple.

Probably the most impressive thing about this shrine is the Tori you seen in the Trip Advisor picture. You can see this from the street. After that, you climb up a long set of stairs and down a rather long walkway to a rather average...More
