The Bandai Highlands is a pond-dotted area on the highlands north of Mt Bandai. It is a popular outdoor destination, offering attractive scenery, various walking and hiking opportunities in summer and skiing in winter. Grandeco Resort is situated at an altitude of around 3300 ft among a lush green forest. A gondola takes you up to the summit of the mountain favored for hiking the nature trails.

Ouchijuku is a former post town along the Aizu-Nishi Kaido trade route, which connected Aizu with Nikko during the Edo Period. Restrictions set by the shogunate required travelers to make their long journeys on foot and as a result, post towns developed along the routes to provide travelers with food, accommodations and rest. Today, Ouchijuku has been restored to look as it did in the Edo Period. The unpaved main street is lined by thick thatched roof buildings, which house a variety of shops, restaurants and minshuku (small traditional Japanese inns). Soba noodles and locally caught fish roasted on sticks are popular specialties.

Mt Azuma-Kofuji  is an active volcano in Fukushima prefecture, Japan. It has a conical-shaped crater and as the name Kofuji meaning “small Fuji”, suggesting the shape looks like a smaller Mt Fuji. The path around the crater takes about 45~60 minutes to make with excellent views of the surrounding area.

The Five Color Ponds or Goshikinuma are a cluster of volcanic ponds and lakes at the foot of Mt. Bandai. When Mt. Bandai erupted in 1888, dozens of lakes were created from the eruption, but the Goshikinuma are the most famous. The rich colors that these lakes and ponds make are from the various minerals found in each that gives them its unique color. The colors also change throughout the year depending on weather and time of day, a truly mysterious phenomenon. The lakes and ponds colors range from a lime green to deep turquoise to a topaz blue and sometimes with a reddish shade. A scenic walking route takes visitors around the ponds. At 3.6 km in length, this walking route usually takes about 70 minutes to complete.
