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.

  • Crane months Castle ablaze and white tiger Corps grave misunderstanding, so location is sacred and I feel the solemn atmosphere. Could not help but 手向kezu incense sticks. Spot of tourism atmosphere pure desire, however, as a child of the Samurai fell on the loyalty of young people doing business there was. Never to being guided to the sign that says "free parking" and to stop the car, and shopping at the souvenir shop's shrine adjacent to ask that. To a lifting belt (oblique version of the guy at the airport) located next to the stairs leading to the tomb the loud clanging. Souvenir shop and tongued the businessman. I just feel sweet in this gap? Way is designated Sazae-San Temple, come visit us.
