Admire the beauty of nature in a zen temple
Opened as a mausoleum to Date Mitsumune, grandson of Date Masamune, a feudal lord of Sendai. Located here is “Sankeiden,” Miyagi Prefecture's oldest mausoleum, nationally designated as an Important Cultural Asset, and you can enjoy the appearance of the four seasons such as the light-up event to celebrate the changing colors of the leaves in the fall carried out in the moss-covered Japanese garden. You can find on the left-hand side of the temple gate a “Marriage Kannon” which is said to bring good luck to a couple's marriage as well as many lined-up marriage “Kokeshi” wooden dolls. You can also experience making prayer beads using beads of your choice.
