Urabandai Kogen is a highland in the northern part of Fukushima Prefecture in the Tohoku Region, situated at an altitude of 800 meters and surrounded by Mt. Bandai, Mt. Adatara, and Mt. Azuma. The highland was created by an eruption of Mt. Bandai in 1888. Urabandai is part of Bandai Asahi National Park and offers a variety of seasonal attractions. Cool weather in summer and deep snow in winter make Urabandai a perfect place for both indoor and outdoor enjoyment. About 300 lakes and ponds, including Lake Goshikinuma and Lake Hibara, are scattered across Urabandai and the harmonious beauty of nature created by the abundant woodlands and lakes will certainly touch the hearts of all visitors.
