  • We drove to the Osaki Hachiman-gu Shrine in the northeastern section of the city of Sendai. Our rental car GPS took us correctly to the shrine’s parking lot behind the main shrine building. From there...  more »
  • 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.  more »
  • 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.  more »

  • A very famous shrine in Sendai. At daytime, sometimes you could get free guide about the shrine. At nighttime, it's just silent since almost nobody goes at night. Perfect for some photo opportunity.
  • Osaki Hachimangu is a beautiful temple. If you are in Sendai around 14th of january I definitly recommend you to check for the Dontosai, which is a local festival, held every year in this temple.
  • A beautiful Shinto Shrine with long history and attractive pattern. Some festival is held every year in this shrine. However, the English information on the site of the shrine is not much.
  • A small and local shrine. Came here on the first day of 2017. Lots of people and was bustling with noise. Many vendors around. But tried some, but was not tasty.
  • So beautiful temple with long history in Japan, must visit!
