Nisshinkan (會津藩校日新館) was established in 1803 to be a leading school to educate the children of the Aizu clan's samurai families. Students here joined at age 10 to embark on an ambitious academic and physical program — with the infamous Byakkotai also originating here. Observe traditional facilities like the martial arts training hall, an astronomical observatory and even Japan's oldest swimming pool at Suiren-Suiba Ike — everything was faithfully restored after being burned down in the Boshin War.
