Ishinomaki & Kesennuma

Ishinomaki & Kesennuma

Ishinomaki City is home to the place of the sailing of Hasekura Tsunenaga (1571-1622). He was a warlord from the Azuchi Momoyama period (1573-1603) to the early Edo period (1603-1868). He led the Keicho Mission to Europe, the only Asian to become a Roman nobleman and a Franciscan Catholic. The city is also home to a restored well and a bronze statue of Tsunenaga.
Located on the north side of Oshima in Kesennuma City, Mt. Kame is a natural observatory and a spectacular spot to view the beautiful scenery from the top of the mountain.
