Sazaedo

Historical Monument
Sazaedo is a hexagonal, three-storied hall built in 1796. It is located on Mt. Iimori, Aizuwakamatsu City, famous for Byakkotai (a group of young samurai called the white tiger corps). It is also called “Sazae-do” because it resembles the shape of a turban shell. It has a mysterious corridor and when you ascend the unique double spiral stairwell before you know it, you are descending again. Thirty-three Saigoku Kannon Statues are placed on the slope and the Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage to 33 Buddhist temples is said to be completed on reaching the top. It was designated as an Important Cultural Property of the country in 1996.

    A Buddhist temple which was Constructed in 1796 entirely from wood, Sazaedo has a double-helix structure, meaning that those who enter Sazaedo will leave the temple without encountering anybody...
