“Shoukeikaku” is a traditional Japanese-style residence located in the suburbs of Sendai. The building is a designated cultural property of Sendai. Inside there are dining facilities where you can enjoy a luxury dining experience.

We offer free shuttle services for experience program participants (advance reservations required). 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.)

At Shoukeikaku residence, relax your body and spirit in the nearby hotel hot spring (or enjoy an after-meal session instead). Next, a staff member will guide you around the traditional mansion and point out the best photo spots. After that, eat a leisurely meal of seasonal ingredients 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 shuttle service to your desired location, such as a hotel.

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

Take advantage of free pick-up/drop-off transportation service, relaxing in natural hot springs, a tour of the former Date residence, and trying on replica 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. Experience the luxurious lifestyle of Sendai nobles at your own pace without being rushed.
