Osaki Hachimangu Shrine
The Honden (inner shrine), Ishinoma (stone room), and Haiden (worship hall) were constructed under the order of Lord Date Masamune in 1607 by skilled carpenters of the day. The architectural style of the shrine is known as Gongen-zukuri style, which is the same as used for Toshogu Shrine in Nikko. As the oldest structure built in the Gongen-zukuri style, which is characterized by gorgeous and elaborate ornamentation, the main building was designated a national treasure in 1952. The Donto festival held each year on January 14 is famous and attracts many visitors.
