Iimoriyama, Aizuwakamatsu

(3.7/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • Walk the road of soil from going on in the elevator runs at the entrance if you pay about 50 Yen higher than sneakers walking shoes are recommended. You must if you come to the Aizu tourist attractions. On overlooking the city to Aizu. Turbo-do I maybe can get from here

  • Excluding the tragedy in history is a strong image of the white Tigers team tragedy, very calm location. Good workout, I went up the stairs.
