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.

  • Castle and the Castle but there is statue of Masamune and views overlooking the city from points. Is seen in the Museum have been doing commercial models of castles and helmet materials exhibition, saw a 16 minute video. Incidentally, I alone at the time of admission, so popular is without facilities. Souvenirs and also cannot recommend the now deserted and stores there, but not open. Go from Sendai station looping climbing the mountain in buses, and time on the way back, down the mountain road for 1 km on foot came back to Sendai station on the subway. Looping while driving and sightseeing buses are paid, we recommend city tours.
