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.

  • Located at the northeastern edge of Aizu-Wakamatsu city. Access is convenient because it passes through the city bus "foppish", "akabe" also. It is also a spot overlooking the Aizu-Wakamatsu city is famous as the place where the white tiger team that can. But Tsuruga Castle is surprisingly difficult. That isn't very high mountains, rises on the escalator pay up on the mountain.

  • Reasons for Aizu-Wakamatsu, went first to the Castle overlooking the city, and saw the White Tiger Corps want to feel down a 10 min bus from the station, is now. Because it was the middle of winter, the escalator is, why if, plow, most are not. It is dangerous and not follow the trail of tourists walked. Wrong side of the legs and children is dangerous. But the prospects are great illusion of white tiger Corps Castle is on fire and it is okay. Also, come in the place of the tragedy that the demonstrable incense, try to learn Turbo Chapel, white tiger Corps Memorial, many studies.
