SpotByakkotai

Byakkotai was a corps consisting of more than 300 male members who were between 16 and 17 years of age, who studied within the Nisshinkan. At the end of the Edo Shogunate, the Boshin War occurred in 1868 during which the Byakkotai were ordered to fight in the battle. Only twenty boys survived from a battle in Tonokuchihara and fled to Iimoriyama. However, they saw fires in the nearby town and thinking Tsurugajo Castle had fallen, they committed ritual suicide.
