Iimoriyama, Aizuwakamatsu

(3.7/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Aizu-Wakamatsu station and then a bus one-day ticket to purchase \500 city we visited at the beginning of the round. With good bus and right-handed and left-handed comes every 30 minutes, so, can cover most sights in the city. I felt air and lined with the graves of the young professional team to Mt. iimori, pins and overwrought and Reiki. There is the Temple of Kajitani, white tiger Corps Memorial (\400), unusual route of "Turbo-Regal" (entry ¥ 450).
