If you want to feel the life and culture of samurai, I recommend going to the Aizu district in Fukushima Prefecture. This district was governed by the strongest samurai group until about 150 years ago. Samurai fought against the new government army to protect their master Tokugawa shogunate. As a result, their castle in Aizu-Wakamatsu, the center of this district was on fire. Even boys in their early teens fought and died. This district still has a lot of old Japanese atmosphere. There is also an old post town called Ouchijuku.
