The Grave of the Matsudaira Family

The grave was constructed in 1657 when Masayori, the heir of the first Aizu lord Hoshina Masayuki, passed away. Tombs for the second lord Masatsune through the ninth lord Takamori, as well as their wives and children, stand side by side. A Buddhist funeral was conducted for the second lord, but the Shinto style was used for all the other lords. The grave is highly valued as one of Japan’s top daimyo family graves for its magnificent scale and historic religious scenery. This is a national Historic Site.
