Godaido Temple五大堂


As a symbol of Matsushima, Godaido Temple is a Buddhist temple that was designated as an Important Cultural Property. It belongs to the Rinzai school of Zen Buddhism headed by Myoushin-ji Temple and to which Zuiganji Temple also belongs. The temple takes its name Godaido because it houses images of the Five Wisdom Kings of Japanese Buddhism (Acala, Kundali, Trilokavijaya, Vajrayaksa, and Yamantaka). The images of the five great wisdom kings created in the middle of the Heian period are normally withheld from public view but are revealed once every 33 years.

Miyagi Main Areas


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.
