Sazaedo, Aizuwakamatsu
(3.8/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • Saigoku 33 Kannon is Mairi. 上rimashite of Sazae-San, with half indent from the top. It is secure because you can get in and out without passes each other. Is a Buddhist temple. We even designated national important cultural properties.

  • Enjoy a magical experience for the double-helical structure, very good. Too many years from being built and even now still see that.

  • It was a staircase of white tiger Corps, grade five years of grade school trip. So wood buildings at that time was hurting places. Again the turban Hall is building technology in Japan's world. You want to have leave, take a look at Japan from ancient times as an architectural structure. With special funding from the State.
