Zuihoden Mausoleum

Other Historic Site/Building
Zuihoden, the mausoleum of Date Masamune who died in 1636 at the age of 70, was built at his request. It consists of the main shrine, hall of worship, place of mercy, and Nirvana gate, conveying to the present the characteristics of luxurious and elegant Momoyama culture. Although it was designated as a National Treasure in 1937, it was destroyed by fire during the war in 1945. It was rebuilt in 1979, and large renovation works were carried out in 2001, and the beautiful colors were restored.

    Not hard to walk from the city center.. beautiful temples and wooded landscapes. Small entrance fee and not a huge place, but I thought it was very nice.
  • Bright colored and unusual mausoleum in a forest setting

    Walking distance from the city center, it was a nice side trip. Brightly colored almost to the point of excess, they are nonetheless interesting to see. Theyve clearly been rebuilt not all that long...

    We walked from the station. Its quite a sight when one climbs up between the tall trees. Inspiring when one reads the history.
