    With the description and display the route very well maintained and fully equipped impression. Most impressed is the machinery of this big old rice by using the power of water? In surprise. Understandable descriptions include a toilet and a bath, watching the fun. And very impressed with the exhibition of famous people was on display on the second floor and Yae and forgot the time. Aizu flirts Declaration is very good. I want visit.

    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!

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.
