#3 of 47 in Things to do in 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. See Sazaedo and all Aizuwakamatsu has to offer by arranging your trip with our Aizuwakamatsu vacation trip planner.

    Was building up in a spiral, as on the other hand come down in a way that the rare. Height 16 m and so on tall buildings, not even a child will score, but a dangerous and difficult in the elderly and young children. Went on a visit to the staircase of the White Tiger Corps, this temple of important cultural asset, but seemed free of white tiger Corps.

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.
