HISTORY IN CITY

After exploring Nihonbashi, an area that prospered as the center of Edo (today's Tokyo), visit Sendai, the gateway to the Tohoku region. Here, you will visit the vibrantly colored Zuihoden mausoleum, which is dedicated to the legendary feudal lord Date Masamune, once the ruler of this land.
