Following the death of Date Masamune and his last will, Zuihoden, a mausoleum was built in 1637.

The architecture style of Zuihoden was a very detailed and beautiful one known as Momoyama.

The buildings surrounding Zuihoden entomb the Date Clans.

The former Japanese Imperial Government considered this structure as a national treasure.

Please visit this extraordinary historical architecture and see the lion mask sculptures, tiles as well as dragon heads at the roof!
