Exceptional Sake and Samurai Legacy

Taisho-era traditional townscapes are adorned with Tsurugajo Castle, where tradition and samurai culture are deeply embedded. Come for the culture and stay for onsen and delicious sake.

Discover Aizu-Wakamatsu

Surrounded by beautiful mountains and valleys, Aizu-Wakamatsu was one of the last samurai strongholds of the Edo period. The samurai became renowned for their loyalty, as they clashed with the Meji government during the Boshin War, which was partially fought in Aizu.

Aizu-Wakamatsu is as famous for its sake as it it is for its samurai, with local breweries crafting delicate rice wines based on long-standing traditions. Established in 1850 and spanning eight generations of family ownership, Suehiro Brewery crafts premium sake using the traditional “Yamahai” method, resulting in a rich and complex flavor profile. Their sake has garnered domestic and international awards, and their catalog includes unique offerings like sparkling sake and sake bath extract. With notable affiliations and a connection to Dr. Hideyo Noguchi, Suehiro Brewery’s legacy extends beyond its exceptional sake production.

Tsurugajo Castle, once a traditional Japanese building, has a rich history as a key stronghold ruled by famous military commanders. During the Boshin Civil War, it bravely endured a month-long siege. While the original castle was mostly demolished in 1874, the current castle tower was rebuilt in 1965. When visiting, don’t miss the Rinkaku Tea Ceremony Room within the castle grounds, surrounded by a stunning Japanese garden. Enjoy traditional matcha tea and seasonal treats while soaking in the garden’s enchanting foliage.

Indulge in the flavors of Aizu-Wakamatsu with local mountain vegetables, grilled miso delicacies like tofu or dried herring, and sweet tempura manju filled with sweetened azuki beans. Cheers to a delightful culinary adventure in Aizu-Wakamatsu!
