Sazaedo, Aizuwakamatsu

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. Sazaedo is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Aizuwakamatsu Edition.

  • Climbs and descents will encounter double helix can now meet in parking tower, while leaving the sketches is that da Vinci seems jungles in reality. In wondering how I constructed a Carpenter of Japan and world this just? The pride of Japan is building wooden double-helix. Saigoku 33 Center because Guri (although a separate donation) think reward can climb, descend from the admission fee of 400 Yen to good cost performance. Tend to look to only the structure, but also wood carvings are stiff. Tickle the curiosity of science. You want to recommend to tourists around the world of mathematics.

  • 6 is a mysterious structure is the Temple of 角三 is the double-helix structure from the entrance with slope ascends to the top floor and coming down to exit the building. Feel the history there is creaking and swaying buildings after more than 200 years, so stately. Up and down just because it takes no time to visit.

Where to stay in Aizuwakamatsu

The main urban area of Aizuwakamatsu offers a number of standard hotels, with some newly built luxury options added into the mix around the city office and the main stops of the train line. However, a greater variety of accommodations lies to the southeast of the town center, by the banks of a river. Here, a mix of modern spa hotels and traditional ryokans with Japanese-style rooms and onsite onsens benefit from the pleasant riverside scenery.
