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. Please refer to the following article.

If you want to enjoy beautiful Japanese countryside views from the train, I recommend the JR Tadami Line in western Fukushima Prefecture. The Tadami line runs from Aizu-Wakamatsu, an ancient city where you can feel the samurai culture of Japan, through the mountains.

Speaking of traditional villages in heavy snowfall areas, Shirakawa-go is the most famous. However, if you are traveling from Tokyo, you may want to add Ouchijuku Village in Fukushima Prefecture to your itinerary. The village still retains the atmosphere of the time when Samurai lived.

At Hanamiyama Park in Fukushima Prefecture, plums, peaches, cherry blossoms and other flowers bloom one after another in the spring as shown on this page. This park is actually a small mountain owned by a farmer. However, the farmer decided that it was a waste to monopolize this landscape, and opened it to the public. Why don't you go see this calm spring scenery?
