Something Long And Complicated visits Lake Inawashiro, Japan πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅

Inawashiro and its tourism industry welcome many visitors from Japan and abroad for outdoor activities in winter and summer, including the suffering tourism industry. It is surrounded by many winter sports and is home to the largest ski resort in the world, the Olympic Ski Resort. Sources: 8, 14

Better news is that in most parts of Fukushima prefecture, time does not carry the stigma of being somewhere else in Japan, or worse, after the disaster. Depending on your travel preferences and if you have a Fukushima Japan guide at hand, it may be useful to visit Fukushima prefecture yourself during your next trip to Japan. Consider a bus trip from Tokyo to Inawashiro, a popular tourist destination for tourists from around the world. Visit the villages of Saiko, Iyashi and Sato, where you can enter the old Japanese villages that have been revitalized with the help of local residents and government officials as well as local businesses. Sources: 2, 6, 13

The Memorial Museum is also a place where you can learn more about the beauty of the landscape, as well as other exhibits that illuminate various volcanoes in Japan. In addition to skiing, there is also Inawashiro National Park, a popular tourist destination for tourists from around the world. From this location you can see the lake itself, which is also a spectacular place not to be missed. It is also accessible from the city of Iyashi, where there will also be about 25 lakes, with a total of 12 lakes. Sources: 4, 10, 16, 20

It is divided into two regions: Hamadori, which runs along the Pacific coast, and the central region of Nakadori, which includes the capital Fukushima and Koriyama, while the western region of Aizu is covered in snow in winter. At the heart of this unique panorama lies Inawashiro, Japan’s fourth largest lake, south of Mount Bandai. A must-see experience is to see the magnificent view of Mount Bandai reflected on the shimmering surface of Lake Inawsiro. Sources: 5, 14, 18

Of the various lake groups, Inawashiro, of which it is the largest, has the highest population density and the second highest number of people per square kilometre. Leisure and water sports are also popular here, making it a popular seasonal activity, especially in summer. Sources: 9, 11

A bonus of a trip to Japan’s ski resorts is that many of them also had their own private ski resorts. Enjoy the Onsen River, the secret of the river, the Yunokami Onsen Station, which has a rare thatched roof and some of the most beautiful views in the area. Sources: 10, 12

On the south side of the lake there is a small mountain called Kimunmorappu, and in the north there is the mountain Bandai. If you are lucky enough to hike on a clear day, you will be rewarded at the summit with the historic castle town of Aizu Wakamatsu, famous for its long samurai line. From there, you can see the Azuma mountain ranges to the east, the mountains of Shizuoka Prefecture and the city of Tokyo. Of course, all lakes are beautiful, but the clear water of Lake Inawashiro is the south side. Lake Hibara is surrounded by a sunken village, which takes its name from the glittering surface above which boats sail. Sources: 1, 3, 4, 15

The lake attracts motor boat enthusiasts who travel as far as Tokyo, as the license plates on cars show. Just east of Aizuwakamatsu, one can see the mountain that juts out, Mount Bandai, a towering dormant volcano. This mountain is located in the northwest of Fukushima and is considered one of the best mountains in Japan. Lake Inawashiro is Japan’s fourth largest, making it a popular ski and onsen destination. Sources: 0, 6, 7

Cycling around Lake Inawashiro is an activity that many visitors enjoy, and bikes can be rented near the lake for a few hundred yen ($4.50) an hour. Sources: 22

Kitakata is one of the three best places for ramen in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Hakata and Fukuoka. Nanko, considered the oldest public park in Japan, is a garden of green pine and red maple trees overlooking beautiful Lake Nankso. After a walk around Toshogu Shrine and Shinkyo Bridge, walk a few minutes down the street and you will all find your favorite pudding throughout Japan. The only Japanese Style Inn (ryokan) outside Japan has its own luxurious hot springs and onsen, each with a hot tub, hot water, sauna, outdoor pool and spa. Sources: 14, 17, 19, 20

Okama Crater (Yu Fu Okamas) is accessible in late spring and early autumn and is a circular lake hidden in the Zao Mountains. The best way to see Lake Inawashiro and the surrounding area is by car, but there are other options. While the sun shines from the south on Lake Inawoshiro, the area of Urabandai north of Mount Bandai is often low cloudy, foggy and rainy, except for a few sunny days. This area around the lake is often foggy and it is rare to see the beautiful blue-green waters called Mashu Blue, which makes it a relatively unexplored region. Sources: 0, 1, 11, 21
