Date Masamune built Sendai Castle on a natural stronghold 115m above sea level. Although its original buildings were destroyed by a fire, the stone walls and reconstructed guard house still remind us of its glorious days.
Recent excavations and research have revealed three distinct periods in the stone walls. The stone walls have been repaired and restored to their original form, as a valuable cultural and historic resource. Sendai is making an effort to retain its historic sites through its urban planning. The City is now planning to further improve the Site of Sendai Castle as a symbol of Sendai.
