Shiroishi Castle was the castle of Katakura Kojuro, the chief vassal to Date Masamune, who built the foundations of Sendai. This castle is scientifically important since it was restored based on Japan's oldest architectural style. Attracting numerous history fans and cosplayers, an event is held on the first Saturday of every October that recreates the deciding battle from the summer campaign of the siege of Osaka between the armies of Katakura Kojuro and Sanada Yukimura.
