3.7
#2 of 47 in Things to do in Aizuwakamatsu
Historic Site Landmark
Iimoriyama commemorates the suicide of 20 teenage Byakkotai soldiers who courageously fought for the shogunate and defended their castle in the mid-19th century. At the base of the hill, visit the museum devoted to the Byakkotai (White Tiger Corps) unit. Farther along on the mountain, see the tombs of 19 soldiers, a shrine, and a statue of a soldier gazing into the distance, accessible by an elevator or for free by stairs. On the northern side of the hill, a hexagonal pagoda shrine attracts visitors with its interesting ramp spiraling from the bottom to the top. You can pick up souvenirs at a shop in the museum.

  • This is where 14.5 years old boys who lost their lives in the Boshin war. Don't know the White Tiger Corps just mountains. White Tiger Corps graves or climb. Is a famous tourist attraction in the White Tiger corps should only climb the mountain just aren't interested, and I think. I think the stairs is quite tough, but not to pay, on the escalator ride. Grandpa and Grandma used to stairs.

  • Three ways to climb the staircase. 250 yen for pay, relying on electric how, beside direct climbs stairs, up the slope from the left would be in traced the White Tiger Corps. You can see the cave and go up the Hill and hidden them. It seems it was made when carrying objects Rome central staircase. Going up stairs than Hill is fun like. Summit White Tiger Corps tombstone and souvenir shops. Hope Castle in the distance if the weather is good.

  • Staircase where you spent the last White Tiger Corps personnel; Kajitani, white tiger Corps Memorial and 19 worker's tomb is situated here. Also designated Turbo, too, is here. And for each each word of mouth because there was helpful. It would be nice to use because there was no reasonably long chat area of 19 graves, Kajitani is hung up the stairs, so along the way escalators. Tea also is located close to the top.

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.
