Sazaedo, Aizuwakamatsu

(3.6/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Climb the double-helix staircase at Sazaedo, a uniquely realized Buddhist temple. Ascend the winding wooden steps to the top of the structure, built in the late 18th-century and reputed to bring good fortune upon pilgrims who make the ascent. Marvel at the timber construction and observe great views across the city from the top. After visiting the temple, consider seeking out the graves of the teenage "White Tiger Corps," who took their own lives at the end of the Boshin war in 1868. See Sazaedo and all Aizuwakamatsu has to offer by arranging your trip with our Aizuwakamatsu vacation trip planner.

  • Designed the structure in a spiral up and down the stairs. I'm going to by 33 Kannon was enshrined until the Edo period, up and down and prayed to all. It is called shinbutsu bunri of the Meiji era when the statues were all removed. So just look at the present internal structure. It's just too funny though. Entrance fee is 400 Yen for adults.

  • Back to intersect at the top from the bottom up and down the climbs. In the route does not intersect any climbing route. You can actually climb will write in words is fun. Here all make pilgrimage saigoku 33 pilgrimage in going up and down. I think many people in the past. This was introduced by tamori.
