The Tsurugajo in Aizu Wakamatsu with Beautiful Garden and Tea Rooms
Originally built in 1384 as a house for the Ashina clan was later turned into a castle called the Kurokawa castle by the mid-15th century.
The current building that exists was built a few years after the world war two, as the previous castle was demolished by the government that was newly formed back in those days in 1874.
The admission fee is 520 yen, which includes a ticket to entre the Chashitsu, literally translated to the "tea room", an architectural structure built to hold Japanese tea ceremonies.
Transported back to the times of the Samurai. × One thing I loved about my time in the Tohoku region was learning more about Japanese history. The Tohoku region has a strong history in the time of the warlords and Samurai of Japan. Tsuruga-jō also known as Aizu-Wakamatsu Castle was one of the last strongholds of samurai loyal to the shogunate but was destroyed in the Boshin War of 1868. While the castle itself had to be rebuilt the garden's walls and moats are all original. A beautiful site amongst the white snow of Winter. Surounded by Cherry trees I would love to revisit here again in Spring time as well! @visitjapanau #visitjapanau #enjoymyjapan #dj_tohoku #tohoku
