From ancient times Matsushima has been revered as a sacred place of worship and scenic beauty, designated as one of the three great views of Japan. Surrounded by abundant nature, national treasure Zuigan Temple was erected in 1609 by the Tohoku regional leader Masamune Date and dedicated to the ancestors of the Date Family. It was Lord Masamune’s most earnest wish to usher in a time of peace throughout the country and wellbeing among its citizens that led to the construction of Zuigan Temple. Thus, it has been greatly admired ever since by the region’s people as the center for worship and sightseeing.
