Autumn image of the garden and Pagoda from Rinnoji Temple,Sendai,Japan. This temple is located the north of Sendai’s downtown.
The temple was founded in 1441 by Date Mochimune, a member of the Date clan that later controlled large parts of northern Japan in the Edo Period. Rinnoji is the family temple of the Date clan, and although it was not always located at its present spot in Sendai, it moved there together with the Date family in the early 1600s. All of the buildings have been recently restored to their original appearances.
