Inariyama is located about a ten-minute drive from Shirakawa Station. It was the gateway to Shirakawa Castle from the Oshu Kaido Route, and it was considered to be the most important military encampment for the eastern army during the Battle of Shirakawaguchi. Currently, the area around the top of Inariyama has been turned into a park, and a monument to Saigo Tanomo has been built there. Additionally, stone memorials for warriors of the Aizu Domain have been erected at the bottom, and across from them are graves of warriors of the Choshu Domain and the Ogaki Domain.
