Discover the most beautiful cherry blossom spots of Sendai, where history and nature blend together in a perfect harmony
The city of Sendai offers plenty of great spots to view the cherry blossoms. One of them is the Zuihoden Mausoleum, the resting place of the warlord who orchestrated the settlement of Sendai in 1601, Date Masamune. At this historical site, where the natural beauty of the four seasons harmonizes gracefully with the stunning architecture, the cherry blossom season is particularly charming, and crowds of visitors flock every year to soak up the spring scenery. Another popular spot is Sendai Castle, where you can enjoy the unique sight of cherry blossoms surrounding the famous statue of Date Masamune. Sendai Castle is also the perfect place to get a great view over Sendai City, and even take a trip back in time to the era of Date Masamune with the onsite VR attraction.
