Aizuwakamatsu is a tourist destination in Fukushima Prefecture in Japan's Tohoku region.
In addition to famous scenic spots, such as Mt. Bandai and Lake Inawashiro, there are also many historical and archaeological sites from the Warring States period and the last days of the Tokugawa shogunate.
However, due to the reputational damage caused by the nuclear power plant accident, many inns and other businesses began to struggle to get by.
However, there is one ryokan that has endured the hard times and improved.
That is, the long-established ryokan called Mukaitaki in Higashiyama Onsen, located about 10 minutes from Aizuwakamatsu Station.

Since its establishment in the Edo period as a health resort for the Aizu clan, it has been visited by many celebrities, and its wooden sukiya-zukuri architecture is a nationally registered tangible cultural property.
The charm of this ryokan lies in the fact that it retains the atmosphere of the time when Hideyo Noguchi and Hirobumi Ito stayed there.
Rather than adding new facilities, the inn has become a thriving ryokan with regular visitors as a result of valuing the fact that the space from that time period can be shared with others.
