Operation Period

All year round.

Time Required

Approximately 2-3 hours (including time for bathing in the hot spring)

Number of Participants



6,600 JPY– (tax included)

For individuals or small groups we can pick you up by car from your hotel, Sendai Airport, a train station, or a tourist attraction of your choice. For larger groups we can pick you up by shuttle bus. (Door-to-door transportation service available from 1 person or more in the evening, 8 people or more in the afternoon.)

Upon arriving to the Shoukeikaku residence, relax your body and spirit in the adjacent hot spring (or enjoy an after-meal dip instead). Next a staff member will guide you around the traditional mansion and point out the best photo spots. After that, dig into a leisurely meal of seasonal ingredients paired with local Miyagi sake or wine. Make sure to try on the replica samurai armor (or kimono) for the perfect souvenir photo. Finally, use the free drop-off service to your desired location (such as hotel).

We are able to accommodate Halal or dietary/allergy needs. Please inquire for details.

Take advantage of free pick-up/drop-off transportation, relaxing in natural hot springs, a tour of the former Date residence, and trying on armor for just the price of one meal. We can pick you up at a tourist location and return you to your hotel if desired. Please enjoy the luxurious lifestyle of Sendai nobles at your own pace without being rushed.
