Undiscovered Destination : Kitakata
This is the first step , going into Kitakata / Aizuwakamazu Area , Fukushima Pref.
Highlight in this movie would be Shingu Kumano Shrine and Okawaso Ryokan,
I visited the shrine in autumn and Okawaso in winter.
Maybe this season contrast can tell you how beautifully distinct the season for each.
Kitakata City :
Very small and tiny city , only 554.7 km² and its population is 46,270 .
How to reach : Shinkansen ＋ Local train from Tokyo (Transfer at Koriyama St) ,
Local Train from Niigata ( Transfer at Niitsu Station)
・Sake and Kura City, Ouchijuku Area (Aizuwakamatsu )
・Atsushio Station( Japan National Treasure ), Temple in winter
Well, I was astonished at this city for the first time cuz lots of beautiful and interesting places , there is no youtube but this city has LONG 3km Sakura street also.
