Aizu Bukeyashiki

Historic Building in Aizu-Wakamatsu

This is a superb reconstruction of the yashiki (villa) of Saigō Tanomo, the Aizu clan’s chief retainer. Wander through the 38 rooms, which include a guestroom for the Aizu lord, a tea-ceremony house, quarters for the clan’s judge and a rice-cleaning mill, presented here in full, noisy working order.
