“Must see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

One of the oldest and most recognizable shrine in Sendai, built in 1607. Its brilliantly colored carvings on a base of deep black lacquer. Take the Sendai Loople Bus and stop at #11 then climb up the stairs. It's really worth to visit this place!

“Use the loople bus to get here”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

The loople bus starts at the train station and for 600¥ it is an on/off bus. This stop is a nice view of the city and 20-30 minutes later you catch the next bus. Otherwise it is a long climb up hill to get here. There are descriptions of how the castle walls were constructed in English. There is a small Shinto shrine on the land and you can see a large Buddha off in the distance.

“Wow!”

This very impressive mausoleum at the top of a lot fo steps is worth the effort. The mausoleums are spectacular and the museum with its artefacts (and skulls) is worth a visit too.

“Highly recommended”

Beautiful Japanese gardens and old temple buildings. Excellent for photography. No bathrooms or food available: it is a working shrine.
