Full of atmosphere and impressive main shrine building, designated as a national treasure, this place has 400 years of history. Enjoy walking up to the shrine. For more, check `hiddenjapanguide.com`

We went there at the time of the 7-5-3 ceremony, so it was interesting to see all those kids in pretty kimonos. But without that it's a simple shrine. If you bought a one day loople bus pass, go and visit it, but unless it's...More

We drove to the Osaki Hachiman-gu Shrine in the northeastern section of the city of Sendai. Our rental car GPS took us correctly to the shrine’s parking lot behind the main shrine building. From there, it’s a five-minute walk to the main shrine building. Like...More

This is a nice walk from the bus stop to the shrine. Enjoyed a good walk up the long staircase to the shrine and enjoyed the nature of beauty.

The temple was built by Date Masamune. It's a little bit far from the other touristic places. If you have time you can go, but don't expect a lot, it's seems like any other temple.

The shrine is most busy during New year's eve (midnight) and January 1st. But I would suggest going on Jan. 14 to see many youth and company employees run around halfnaked despite the cold. There are many food stalls everywhere too. It's a must see...More
