This shrine was constructed in 1607 by the order of Date Masamune, the founder of Sendai, and conveys the prestige of the powerful Date clan. It has been designated a National Treasure for its gorgeous style of construction, a style rooted in the Azuchi-Momoyama period of the 16th century. Every year on January 14 Osaki Hachimangu is the site of the biggest Donto Festival in the region, when worshippers bring their New Year’s decorations to throw into a huge bonfire and pray for health and good fortune in the coming year.
