①Ouchi JukuThis is the highlight of Shimogo Town, which is adjacent to the south of Aizu Wakamatsu City. The town was once a bustling post town on the Aizu Nishi Kaido, the main road from Aizu Wakamatsu to Imaizumi City in Tochigi Prefecture. The town's streets have been carefully preserved to this day.
②Tō-no-HetsuriIn the local dialect, "hetsuri" means a steep cliff. About 100 meters of shore along the mountain stream has been eroded into a strip by the flow of the river and wind and rain over a period of about one million years, and strange rocks dot the landscape. Walking across the suspension bridge was a thrill and a treat. A national natural monument that is most crowded during the season of autumn leaves. It is also known as Fujimi Park, and the view when the Fuji (wisteria) flowers are in bloom is also recommended.
