  • Back guide go to Aizu-Wakamatsu tourism for the first time, where crane months Castle, Aizu bukeyashiki, Noguchi Hideyo Museum came out. Besides iimori mountain, white tiger Corps Memorial, but by bus around the got off the Samurai at the beginning. Unfortunately drizzling, if I thought the black rain from the middle and laid back I could see. And equipped with facilities such as the historic home of the Chief retainer of the House, Museum of history and Aizu, kitchen, tenement house, living, not paved pavement is very good. Last souvenir shop, buy a thing may be perfect.

  • Samurai often comes out in TV dramas, is a partial depiction actually did and clearly feels it is, here, was recognized for the first time. Than I thought very broadly, most amazing room. Each room's role is fixed in the movie performer in the House running around, but could understand the translation. It is better we went here.

  • Literally the best samurai residence for me so far. The place is HUGE and it has a lot of information (especially if you can read Japanese). I spent a good part of my visit to Aizu here.
  • A really nice way to pass an hour or 2. The garden are beautiful and there's a lot to learn about the lifestyle of the samurai. There is limited info in English though.
  • Beautiful historic grounds in Aizuwakamatsu! When you purchase a ticket to go inside you are greeted by wonderful staff and a nice warm rice sweet drink which is great during the winter season! From there it's a self guided tour through the historic samurai residence filled with great history and exhibits! I definitely recommend especially if you're taking the tour bus route!
  • I have seen many Samurai house before. This is the largest Samurai house for one single family I have evev seen (except the daimyos, of course).
  • Went there some years ago and thought it was great , will be going back.

Where to stay in Aizuwakamatsu

The main urban area of Aizuwakamatsu offers a number of standard hotels, with some newly built luxury options added into the mix around the city office and the main stops of the train line. However, a greater variety of accommodations lies to the southeast of the town center, by the banks of a river. Here, a mix of modern spa hotels and traditional ryokans with Japanese-style rooms and onsite onsens benefit from the pleasant riverside scenery.
