Fantastic cultural experience and well worth the effort of climbing to the top. Beautiful gardens and the small museum with the forensic re-construction exhibits very interesting.

There wasn't a whole lot to see. English translations weren't great. There are a few mausoleums that are the main attractions

Interesting after a relatively steep climb up. Not too big an attraction but a worthy visit. Was the first stop for loople for my visit. For the oldies, note the climb up.

I made it here dropping off at the 2nd stop on the Loople bus from Sendai Station. It was quite a walk up hill to this place. The few mausoleum of historical Japanese architecture at this place are indeed very colorful.
