Aizu Samurai House

Take a field trip to Aizu Buke Yashiki (samurai residence). There, you can try making Aizu folk toys, or have fun painting Akabeko or Okiagari dolls.

The Aizu Bukeyashiki mansion was once the home of a high ranking samurai who held significance to that region. Residing in the house was the family of the samurai, employees, and servants. The original complex burnt down during the Boshin War in 1868, but was fully restored in the Edo period. Because the samurai that lived there was prestigious with a grand retinue, it is no surprise that you will get to explore the grand mansion with dozens of bedrooms, a garden, guest rooms, a tea house, rice mill, and an archery range.

It has now been transformed into a museum allowing tourists to learn about the people's daily lives and historical events through statue figures and exhibits.
