Built on Aoba-yama in 1602 by Date Masamune and destroyed during Allied bombing, Sendai-jō, also called Aoba-jō (Green Leaves Castle), still looms large over the city. Giant moss-covered walls, as imposing as they are impressive, are still intact and the grounds offer sweeping views over the city. There's also a larger-than-life statue of Masamune on horseback.
