The residential complex of a top-ranking Aizu retainer, and other Important Cultural Assets of Fukushima
The residential complex of a top-ranking Edo period Aizu retainer, Tanomo Saigo, is featured at this museum park. There is also a bailiff’s office that has been designated an Important Cultural Asset of Fukushima Prefecture, as well as a tea house, a rice mill, and other buildings of historical interest on the grounds. In the 38 roomed Japanese house, wax figures demonstrate how samurai families lived in the old days.
There is a shop carrying traditional Aizu craftwork and souvenir items in the main building, as well as a restaurant serving local cuisine.
You can experience hands-on activities including painting akabeko and okiagari koboshi, or enjoy a set of quiz cards (300 yen for one set of 3) teaching about the history and culture of Aizu. If you answer them correctly, you will receive a prize.
