  • Toshogu Shrine

    東照宮

    Toshogu is located at the north end of Miyamachi’s main street and only a 3 minute walk from JR Toshogu Station. 

     

    Historically, any Toshogu shrines were built to enshrine the spirit of Tokugawa Ieyasu, once the supreme ruler of Japan. Date Masamune, the famous first ruler of Sendai region, had a great respect for Ieyasu. Sendai’s Toshogu was constructed in 1654 during the rule of his second son, Date Tadamune to honor Ieyasu's spirit as the guardian deity of his clan.

     

    Annual festivals reflecting Japanese religion and culture are held throughout the year. The New Year’s prayer and Donto-sai festival in January are especially famous and familiar among the people of Sendai. Toshogu has something to offer in each season, whether it's shrine festivals, cherry blossoms in the spring, or colored leaves in the autumn, so try taking a stroll to this old shrine when you visit Miyamachi.

  • Antique Market

    骨董青空市

     

    An antique market is held at Toshogu on the 4th Sunday of a month. About 20 dealers from Tohoku region gather here with all sorts of antiques and old articles for more than 30 years now. You can find old kimonos, traditional furniture, china, vintage books and magazines, and miscellaneous secondhand items. If you like kimonos, you'll see them in piles and each piece is sold from as cheap as 500 yen. Whatever you're looking for, you might be lucky enough to find a bargain if you have good eyes for vintage items. 

     

     

    It starts from 7 a.m. and finishes around 3 p.m. It's probably better to go in the morning as you have chance to see more things compared to the afternoon. Try an early morning visit and enjoy searching through items that moves your heart.
