Sendai Toshogu Shrine (仙台東照宮)

"This Shinto shrine, located next to Toshogu Station on the JR Senzan Line, is one of many Toshogu shrines dedicated to the great shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu built across the country. Established in 1654 by Date Tadamune, the second lord of the domain, the shrine is believed to grant worshippers better luck, protection from misfortune, familial tranquility, success in academic endeavors, business prosperity, and certain victory in competitions. Out of the many Toshogu shrines across the country, only the Sendai Toshogu Shrine and the Toshogu shrine in Nikko have main shrine buildings which are adorned with decorations made of the ""seven treasures"" - gold, silver, pearl, silver, agate, lapis lazuli, crystal, and coral. The main shrine building, along with several other structures on the grounds such as the Karamon gate which is only opened during the shrine's annual festival on April 17, are designated National Important Cultural Properties."

Review of Sendai Toshogu Shrine

Reviewed:2018/02/12 Tranquil and authentic shrine
Quiet spot not too far from centre of town with some attractive buildings. Monthly antique/flea market.

急に思い立って仙台東照宮の石鳥居と石段の石材を確認してきた。伊達家2代目忠宗の奥方が故郷備前の犬島の花崗岩をわざわざ船で運んできて石鳥居を建造したとのこと。芭蕉もここを訪れたことが「七日 快晴。加衞門同道ニテ権現宮ヲ拝。」と『曽良旅日記』にある。権現宮とは東照宮のことで、新暦では元禄2年6月23日だった。

仙台から仙山線で一駅です。駅を降りて、10-15分程度歩いて東照宮につきました。ただ、このコロナ禍だからなのか、観光名所にしては人が少ないと思いました。

          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.
