Visit the historic site of Sendaijo Ato, an Edo-period structure destroyed in World War II. Demolished during the 1945 bombing of Sendai by the United States, only the ruins of moss-covered stone walls remain on site. Visit the castle museum to see a model of what the building used to look like, inspect a reconstructed guard tower, and admire relics from the castle’s past. From the hilltop on which it stands, the castle and its grounds offer panoramic views of Sendai. Using our world travel planner, Sendai attractions like Sendaijo Ato can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
Sendaijo Ato reviews
So were in a rush and the sun was going down so it was a quick stop here This is the site of Sendai castle not much remaining other than the walls See my photo for the statue of the Samuria and... more »
This loople system is so poorly managed it's not even funny. Absolutely jam packed full of people with drivers ignoring stops and randomly heading back to the main station mid journey. After 3... more »
Good views of Sendai. Easy 50 minute (approx) walk from Sendai or from International Centre subway station. Part of the walk is uphill that some will find strenuous. There is a Sendai Loople bus service that stops at the castle. The Castle ruins are really just the footprint of the castle. There are remains of castle wall gates, with information boards (in Japanese and English), that you pass walking to the castle location. There are food venues at the summit - didn't try them. Summit can be crisp and windy in winter (very chilly, with snow settled in various places in shadow).
I just really enjoyed the walk up! Very pretty temple at the top and the view is worth it alone.
