Mount Iimori

Home to the tale of the tragically misguided Byakkotai warriors
Mt. Iimori overlooks much of Aizu, including a clear view of Tsuruga Castle. It is an important site for the Aizu people because this is the place where 19 young men of the Byakkotai (White Tiger Brigade) committed ritual suicide during the Boshin Civil War in 1868.
Their tragic decision has been depicted in films, TV series and other media.
