Michinoku Date Masamune Historical Museum (みちのく伊達政宗歴史館)
A history museum dedicated to the samurai Date Masamune. The museum's entrance, modeled after the Date clan crest, draws the eye. One of the museum's biggest draws is its lifelike wax models depicting epic moments from Date Masamune's life. Amazingly, Masamune's face as it appears in the museum's exhibits was reconstructed based on the remains of the samurai exhumed during work to rebuild the Date clan mausoleum. Visitors can also try on samurai armor and take a commemorative photo. In the museum cafe, you can enjoy sweets made with zunda mashed boiled green soybeans or a Masamune Parfait topped with a crescent moon-shaped cookie.

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.
