What is Zuihoden?

Zuihoden is a shrine to Date Masamune, who was active in the Sengoku period (1467-1590). The current building was reconstructed after the original was lost to war damage in 1945. In the museum, there are the remains of Date Masamune, burial items, and other replicas displayed so it is a must see for history lovers. Zuihoden is surrounded by a beautiful natural environment and you can enjoy the scenery in all four seasons.
