A wonderful place to visit, well worth it if you have the time. We took the loople bus directly to the site (¥620 for a day pass) There is a climb up the hill to the top which is quite steep but is beautifully surrounded by trees. There is a ¥550 charge to enter beside a nice wee gift shop. There are some interesting signs in English but we were so lucky to come across one of the guides, Taichi, who gave us a free tour for over 30 minutes. He spoke excellent English and really brought the story of the mausoleum and Date Masamune (the feudal war lord) to life. The buildings are colourful and beautiful and they have done very well to recreate much of what was lost in the damage caused by world war two.

For architecture lovers, history fans or simple admirers of beautiful things, the Zuihoden is a very nice place to visit in Sendai. The little slope you have to climb to access the mausoleums is worth the effort: the three mausoleums are simply stunning. Though you have to pay 500yens to access the Zuihoden one, there is a little museum next to it where you can learn lots of things concerning the site and the archeological findings done there before the rebuilding of the mausoleums, and some objects found in the tombs are exposed.
The place itself has a very quiet and peaceful atmosphere.

Resting place of lord Date Masamune. Structure has beautiful golden colors and intricate patterns.
U have to pay 500 as entry fee. Some discount with loople pass is available.

Also has the children's cemetery area which was quite fascinating too.

Takes around 40 mins to walk around.

Good place to see fine Japanese architecture
