がんばっぺ福島、その2: 会津若松 For Fukushima, 2nd Day: Aizu Wakamatsu


With the samurai of Aizu Wakamatsu Castle

今回の東北旅で福島の観光名所、歴史的な会津若松へ行きました。お城と武家屋敷はもちろんけど、お城での侍の格好している案内人と、武家屋敷での赤べこ塗体験が一番の思い出になりました。

どれだけ会津若松が観光上手か、感心しました。良い風にですよ。うちのままとパパ、私ども夫婦、そして子供3人で行きましたが、皆が素晴らしい思い出になりました。

今回は市内しか見れませんでした。次回は磐梯山、大内宿、そしてできたら尾瀬に行きた~いな!

“For Fukushima” was the theme for our family trip to Tohoku. We spent the 1st night in the Hawaiians Resort in Iwaki City along the coast. For the 2nd day, we drove inland to the opposite side of Fukushima to the historical castle town of Aizu Wakamatsu.

We saw the famous castle as well as toured the Aizu Bukeyashiki samurai residence complex. While they were both impressive, we had the best memories from the guide wearing a samurai outfit outside the castle, as well as the “Aka-beko” painting workshop at the samurai museum. It’s experiences like those that make for the best family bonding.

For this visit to Aizu, we only got to see the town. Next trip, I want to go explore Mt. Bandai, see the Ouchi Edo-era post town, and get lost in the wilderness of Oze. Aizu, I’ll be back!
