Iimoriyama, Aizuwakamatsu

(200+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Aizuwakamatsu family vacation planner to add Iimoriyama and other attractions to your Aizuwakamatsu vacation plans.
