Down the northern side of hill Iimoriyama, located in Aizu-Wakamatsu, you can find the Sazaedo pagoda, an important cultural property of Japan. Completed in 1796, this architectural masterpiece is famous for its double helix staircase ー people who go up and down the pagoda at the same time will never cross paths. Further up the hill are the 19 tombs of the Byakkotai soldiers, an army of teenagers who commited mass suicide out of honour to their lord in 1868, after the Tsuruga Castle (Wakamatsu Castle) was attacked.
