Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 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.

  • Climbs on foot for comfort is also available, but there's also some good sweat multiply is steep. Historic sites such as the White Tiger Corps 19's Tomb will spread and climb up the Hill. You can see the Aizu-Wakamatsu Castle far away from here. It is a visit from the Gifu, Gifu district on the clan's monument is surprised.

  • It was a trip since elementary school. Towel bring so long a compact staff walking distance to preserve fitness on the escalator for climbing and fun TV. in high temperature is required. I think as there are places to take a break here and there, so enjoy the Green walk.

  • From the bus stop is close to tourist attractions. To climb long-or choose a stair or escalator 250 yen. A couple percent. But I'm tired this escalator is pretty steep, standing alone. And on the way down was hard. It might be good to climb slowly in summer time, it made me think.
