Sendai Daikannon (仙台大観音)
This temple is about a ten-minute drive from Kunimi Station on the JR Senzan Line. It's also known popularly as Sendai Daikannon after the 100-meter-high statue with this name. Built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Sendai municipal system and to wish for prosperity in the 21st century, its foundation reaches 21 meters underground. Daikokudo with its red torii gates is also on the grounds. It honors Aburakake Daikokuten and is known as a matchmaking spot. Every month on the 18th, Kannon Bodhisattva's festival day, they hold lectures that expound the teachings of Buddhism in an easily accessible way. Anyone interested in Buddhism can participate for free. They also hold pet memorial services.
