Sazaedo, Aizuwakamatsu
(3.8/5 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.

  • Behind the stairs halfway up the tourist destinations in the land of the White Tiger Corps Kajitani, the aroma of the Showa era, iimori mountain tea. It is very interesting and unusual building is designated nationally. From the exterior, Wow! This angle is building is not beside the leaning tower of Pisa. Climbing and descending spiral become the alternative route. People go up and down over the head. Lined with sculpture Japan mythology centered on the inside, and writing articles, but almost no context. Did not see the Buddha. However, the very important cultural properties, not the best preserved. Gone where the admission of wonder.

  • Turbo is, go up the stairs from the entrance to iimori mountain quite. Around the top of the stairs from the escalator at an additional cost? But on particularly lower body is without problem, but the senior sweat to level. I thought from watching on the television show 'beauty giant"had been introduced here, you want to visit, but I was surprised than imagined antiquated. Well I believe that hold up here. 400 Yen Kannon is placed into payment, rather than in the spiral staircase climbing modestly sloping corridor and construction advances only in true pilgrimage. Build without having to meet and drive down in the parking garage of the recent top-floor climb like the descend from the ceiling and the floor was very quiet. Beautiful curves were constructed with wooden, wooden building in construction, 220 years ago, and I'm afraid. Time travel as a strange feeling.
