  • Pretty good English explanations for historical events most non-Japanese do not know about. Pretty surroundings.  more »
  • It was really informative and interesting. Although, the bad side was that, it was relatively quite small and not really worth the price (in my opinion). But it is a must go, if you are near the area!  more »
  • It's truly a unique place. It's a memorial sight for the Byakkotai (White Tiger Brigade)--a group of young warriors who fought in the Boshin War and committed suicide when they thought the castle had been taken. Theirs is a story of both honor and tragedy. And visitors should look it up before they go to understand the full import of the sight. (Also--there's a statue donated by WWII-era Italy which is also an interesting story). Like I said, truly unique!
  • Byakkotai (White Tigers) Memorial. A museum for the memory of young warriors who made samurai suicide in the Boshin War 1868.
