(2.9/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • Panoramic of Sendai is the Sendai castle on a hill 130 m above sea level so that you can. Many attractions, such as the Aoba Castle exhibition hall and the Castle proper mark, to the ruined castle are Sendai Castle Museum and the equestrian statue of Masamune. It is indispensable to the Sendai tourism spot.

  • Climb the Mountain Museum next to the course and go by bus up to the top. Exploring crispy and the trail is quite steep, so Sendai rubles and tourism means 100 yen bus is still obtained. Big tower site of Castle are Sendai Castle. Sendai city to enjoy the feeling of good location. ITA Warriors team met and dance and guide. In the food and beverage outlets, zunda is can I get a shake.
