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.


In order to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus infection, the mausoleum will accept up to 100 people per hour for group customers, and 25 people each for the museum.
