Takadate Gikeido

Hiraizumi Town

Southern Iwate

Takadachi is a hill located to the east of Chuson-ji Temple, and is also called Hangandate. Although it is now narrow due to erosion by the Kitakami River, this area has been considered a great strategic point since the Kiyohira era. At the top of Takadate is Yoshitsune Hall, which was built in 1683 by Sendai Date Tsunamura, and a statue of Yoshitsune is enshrined inside the hall. If you look at Takadate from the opposite bank of the Kitakami River, you will see Gikeido Hall on top of the hill surrounded by trees. It has an atmosphere as if Minamoto no Yoshitsune, the general of Hakko, is standing there.
