Iimoriyama, Aizuwakamatsu
(3.8/5 based on 180+ 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. Use our Aizuwakamatsu family vacation planner to add Iimoriyama and other attractions to your Aizuwakamatsu vacation plans.

  • White Tiger Corps, feel the very famous story, thinking of the tragedy and brave, seen looking for Aizu Castle from the staircase. During the volunteer staff was talking about "in the fall, Kaesong 's" Word felt proud of Aizu. Escalators and even elderly people can climb easier. We climbed the stairs, her regret. I have escalators worth 250 yen.
