Sendai Castle (Aoba Castle), Sendai

(3/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Visit the historic site of Sendai Castle (Aoba Castle), an Edo-period structure destroyed in World War II. Demolished during the 1945 bombing of Sendai by the United States, only the ruins of moss-covered stone walls remain on site. Visit the castle museum to see a model of what the building used to look like, inspect a reconstructed guard tower, and admire relics from the castle’s past. From the hilltop on which it stands, the castle and its grounds offer panoramic views of Sendai. Sendai Castle (Aoba Castle) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Sendai Edition.

  • Over time, walk while station early in the morning, I tried to visit. Has quite a steep hill, but to places or turned stairs, climb Lookout, and surprisingly easy to make. It is a very good place that offers views of the snowy mountains of Sendai city, far before the statue of the famous date Masamune.

  • Live from Sendai!! ️ speaking, often catching this place is as popular as the scenery is the best. It is imagined and the castle is not only a stone wall, but Castle is restored when you are good, and want to be. It seems is a famous dokuganryu Masamune, but this image is not a eonunbagi. Healthy me, I heard your mother used to death statues and portraits are painted in first.
