Fifteen minutes away from Sendai Station on the Loople Sendai bus is Zuihoden, the mausoleum complex of Date Masamune, a territorial lord or daimyo of the Tohoku Region.

He was famous for being a powerful warlord despite missing an eye. Hence, he was called the dokuganryu or the "One-eyed Dragon." In Zuihoden you can take a walk around large trees and nature only found in Sendai while looking at Date Masamune and his heirs' beautiful resting place.

Love to travel, meet people, and try new things. When you travel you meet new people, when you meet people, you learn new things. The world is limited but there isn't an end to what I can learn.
