Introducing Aizu-wakamatsu

Aizu-Wakamatsu, a pilgrimage destination for Japanese history buffs, is a former feudal capital with a story to tell. It's a sprawling city really, but the downtown area where the sights are plays up its history well. Nanoka-machi-dōri, in particular, has a number of old-fashioned shops selling local crafts. Aizu is also famous for its sake, and there are a number of breweries around town that do tours and tastings.
