11 Yakushido hall of Mutsukokubunji Temple

Masamune built this structure in 1607 at the remains of the lecture hall of Mutsukokubunji temple. The “Zushi (miniature shrine)” inside is built in “irimoya-zukuri” style with shingle-roof, with its walls and doors decorated by engravings, gold leaf and metal fittings in brilliant colors, exemplifying the gorgeous and luxurious “DATE” culture. Along with Osaki Hachimangu shrine, it is considered to be the representative building of the Momoyama-style architecture in Sendai. It was designated as a National Important Cultural Property in 1903.
