Also known as Aizufuji, Mount Bandai has been revered by people since ancient times as a holy mountain where spirits reside. In October, the mountain surface is covered in vivid red and yellow leaves, which only adds to its beauty. The Bandai-sen Gold Line lies close to the Mount Bandai crater and is popular as a driving course that offers beautiful, postcard-like views of the autumn colors found behind the mountain .
