I am a life traveler. I have traveled to many parts of the Hispanic world: Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina, Spain, USA, etc. I love getting to know new places and the people who live there. Now I would like to help travelers and share joys of traveling. I can show you the city of Sendai and its surroundings. If you wish, I will be able to expand places throughout the Tohoku area.

Tour description

The founder of the city of Sendai was Masamune Date (1567-1636), one of the samurai who competed to be the shogun of all Japan. Masamune, an enterprising samurai, sent a diplomatic mission to Spain and the Holy See in Rome, headed by Hasekura Tsunenaga, in order to establish trade with Spain. Although he could not achieve his dreams, he founded the base of the Date manor, the most powerful in the northeast ( Tohoku ) region of Japan.

All the tourist spots in Sendai are cultural and historical heritages that come from the Date lineage . So the history of the Date lineage, especially Masamune Date, serves as a link to better understand the city of Sendai.

We will take a tour of famous places related to Masamune. Zuihoden, the mausoleum where Masamune is entombed , is hidden in a cypress jungle shrine.
Aoba-jo , the former residence of Masamune, is the best place to get a panoramic view of the city.
