Tsurugajo Castle is a symbol Aizu-Wakamatsu City and is a huge tourist attraction.
Since being rebuilt in 1965, the top floor now contains a museum displaying information about the local history. Things such as armor, katanas, old kimonos, even artifacts from the Edo era (1603-1868).
Keep an eye out for Yae Niijima, a young woman in her 20's who disguised herself as a man, and surviving, to fight against the Meiji government in the war! After the way she did a lot for the community, even volunteering as a nurse in other wars. So it only makes sense that she would eventually become the official character for the Fukushima prefecture!!
So come on over to Fukushima and experience a special part of Japanese history!
