Zuihoden Mausoleum

Zuihoden Mausoleum

Built in the 17th century during the Edo period, Zuihoden Mausoleum (瑞鳳殿, Zuihōden) in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture is the resting place of Date Masamune who was a powerful daimyo and the founder of Sendai. The influential feudal lord ruled over the Sendai Domain from nearby Aoba Castle (Sendai Castle), which he constructed in the early 17th century. Date Masamune’s son and grandson, Date Tadamune and Date Tsunamune, are also entombed at the Zuihoden complex in nearby mausoleums (Kansenden and Zennoden respectively), while other descendants are buried in more simplistic tombs and graves. Although the original mausoleum was destroyed during World War II, it was later restored to its former grandeur, and today, Zuihoden is still a visually mesmerizing sight. The collection of tombs are decorated intricately with blue, green, red, and gold, giving Zuihoden an air of opulence characteristic of the Momoyama art style. The area is also populated by enormous cedar trees, which weave seamlessly through the sacred and tranquil grounds. Nearby Zuihoden’s main buildings is the Zuihoden Museum, which displays family artifacts from the Date clan, including weapons, documents, and even family bone fragments and hair.
