  • Here you will often come and Mairi. Through the every time along the road of big red Torii and air changes with garatsu. Thought I'd proceed and there is a moat, moat just when most people through the moat from date Masamune of Sendai clan period of history that is. When it finishes climbing the stairs made of large stone Causeway of Flagstone. By the way, is next to the stairs is wooded trees is respectable Sakaki tree, is so used to the murmur of prayer. Is new year's day and no matter how Festival should be et al-I and know that the shrine has been loved, and many people came to the family, swilling is quiet at this time. More orders recently and resting, where the sweet and delicious, very delicious sweetness, so go you're looking for here is delicious. Looks is in houses comes into view, in going ahead and leave the long floor and pass it. National treasure is in black lacquered, is the magnificent mini Nikko Toshogu Shrine and said it would be their departure. Great architectural sculptures and various colors are used. With resting State of the restructuring was playing on TV. When you ring a Bell to the string light blue yellow red laces, so I thought oh. And there was something like that it mimics the amulet. Amulet Sendai unique type, etc., Rakuten, vegalta, eightinainars, Kitty, is rich and varied. Of course, all of these sports teams are like family coming at Osaki hachimangu shrine. So we recommend a all in closer seen you around that long in front of the floor and the Office designated as a bypass is most of them, but because you have time. Will also said if the Sendai tourism Osaki Hachiman shrine. It is most recommended places in Sendai city in person.

  • 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!
