Aizu Wakamatsu is a city in the western part of Fukushima Prefecture. During the Boshin War, the then town of Aizu Wakamatsu with its Aizu Wakamatsu Castle were besieged by Imperial forces, and although they surrended the people were badly treated afterwards. Aizu Wakamatsu attractions include the reconstructed Aizu Wakamatsu Castle, Tsuruga Castle Park, which is most famous for its cherry blossom and is considered one of Japan's Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots, and Aizu Matsudaira's Royal Garden.
