Kanrantei Tea House / Matsushima Museum (観瀾亭 松島博物館)

4.0

Historical Monument

Kanrantei is a tea house that was transferred from Toyotomi Hidetoshi’s family residence in Shinagawa, Edo, Fushimi- Momoyama Castle, as a gift to Date Masamune. The second-generation lord, Lord Tadamune moved the building to Matsushima. It was used as a facility “Okariya” for Matsushima sightseeing and entertaining lords, aristocratic women and concubines. The paintings on the fusuma (sliding doors) by Sendai clan painter Sakuma Shozan have been recognized as an Important Cultural Property of Japan.

          Lying along the northeastern coast of Japan, Miyagi prefecture is home to lashings of natural parks, oysters, and hot springs. While the bustling city of Sendai offers some simple city entertainment, it's the Matsushima islands that deserve the most attention, having boosted the prefecture's reputation as one of Japan's most scenic views.
