  • I stopped by on the road trip of 3 g. In that year, attended and mochi was too sweet. Rice-cakes, children had been much with emotion. Treat thank you. Samurai House Tour easy-to-understand, so children who looked curious interest. It's easy to follow route. Memorable red accretion painting experience has finally become a Memorial.

  • Highly recommend visiting the Samurai Residence in either spring or winter. This is a very well planned and laid out outdoor museum that tourist will really enjoy. I recommend the audio guide. After touring this place you can enjoy local dishes.
  • They keep the place as real before. Let people know about Samurai life in the past.
  • 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!
  • 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.
