Places Around to Visit
A Western-style wooden building from the early Meiji period. It was the largest county office in the prefecture at the time of its construction in the Meiji period, with columns reminiscent of Greek architecture and fan-shaped stained glass. Now, it is open to the public as a historical museum.
This exhibition hall introduces the Aizu-Tajima Gion Festival, which is held for three days every year. Life-size dolls are used to recreate the festival’s most solemn and spectacular Nanahokai Gyorestu parade, as well as the large stall stands and children’s kabuki that make the night lively.
