Nisshinkan was the highest school of the Aizu clan, which was built in 1803 for the purpose of developing human resources. The children of the feudal lord entered the school at the age of 10 and worked hard on scholarships and martial arts to train their minds and body. At the current Nisshinkan, you can see the magnificent old architecture and learn at that time, as well as experience various Bushido (the code of the samurai) such as Kyudo (Japanese archery) and zazen. Various information and materials that show a high level of education are posted. This is a great place to visit for any history lovers and there is also an experience corner where children can fully enjoy themselves.
