Be it at Goshiki-numa, a grouping of many lakes great and small, or at Lake Inawashiro, whose face reflects in its waters the grandeur of Mount Bandai, you’ll be able to savor the very best of nature’s beauty in Fukushima. One sight that’s absolutely not to be missed is Ouchi-juku, a post station town that flourished during the Edo period and retains that historical flavor even now. During the winter, be sure to take the Ouchi-juku Night Tour and enjoy the wonderful snowy landscapes here.
