Like these footprints, life is an endless loop of ups and downs...


This is not actually a black and white shot... but the effect of the snow makes it such.

Taken in Iimoriyama Hill, Aizuwakamatsu



At the top of the Iimoriyama hill found the graves of 19 boys who were members of the Byakkotai or White Tigers. They commited suicide at this place in 1868.

They were part of a larger group composed of forty boys (ages 15-17), who were ordered into battle against the Meiji government soldiers by the last clan daimyos of Aizu.
