24 Kanrantei Tea House and partition paintings

24 Kanrantei Tea House and partition paintings

Built on a location with a view of the poetry-famed Matsushima, this palace was for the regional samurai ruler to stay and rest. Partition paintings are in the “Damie” style, highly characteristic of the Momoyama period (1573-1615). It is said that the building was originally a part of Fushimi Castle in Kyoto, and gifted to DATE Masamune from TOYOTOMI Hideyoshi, one of the unifiers of Japan. It was then dismantled and transported for reconstruction at the present location by the second DATE lord Tadamune. The name of the building, “Kanrantei,” meaning a place to watch the rippling waters, was given by the fifth DATE lord, Yoshimura.
