Iimoriyama, Aizuwakamatsu

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.

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.
