  • A huge white statue that also serve as a temple. Inside, there are 108 different statues depicting human earthly desires, and a jewel. The view of Sendai city can be seen from the top. However, the English information is not much enough, giving difficulties to understand what's inside.
  • Pretty great to see and one of the tallest statues in the world. You can go inside and almost to the top. Has 108 different Buddhas inside.

Where to stay in Sendai

In the city center of Sendai, you'll find a good range of budget and luxury accommodations to suit a range of tastes. From standard high-rise hotels to traditional "ryokan" (guesthouses), they sit pretty close to the main train station, forming clusters around the main public parks, commercial developments, and temples. The surrounding landscape features a number of "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) located in clusters around hot springs. Take a look close at Mount Okura and Kamakurayama for some of the most concentrated patches of spa retreats.
