Review of Chidokan

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2016/10/14 Old School for young Samurai 若き武士の学び舎
Amazing it is still there, the old school for young Samuraiunder King Sakai , as it used to be. Subject included localized Analects of Confucius ethics...
Reviewed:2016/08/05 Limited interest as all signs in Japanese & English pamphlet very brief
Worth a look in if you are in the area. Free entry but not much more can be learnt than from a good travel book or quick Google search. Shame not more is translated into English.
Reviewed:2013/04/05 It's Free! Worth a look
The Chidokan is a free museum on the grounds of the old samurai school. It is quite interesting and they have a free pamphlet at the gate in English. They also ask that you sign their visitor book...

          Yamagata Main Areas


          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
