This hotel is located within Bandai-Asahi National Park and is very close to Goshiki-numa, a cluster of five volcanic lakes, each with its own distinctive color, that form one of the most representative scenic spots in Fukushima Prefecture. A large-scale resort hotel, the Ura-bandai Royal Hotel commands a particularly fine view of Mt. Bandai. This hotel adjoins and shares a common garden with the Morohashi Museum of Modern Art, which offers visitors the casual enjoyment of a collection of masterpieces by Salvador Dali and other world-renowned artists including Picasso, Renoir, Van Gogh, Marie Laurencin, Utrillo, etc. The hotel is also conveniently linked to Aizuwakamatsu, Kitakata, Inawashiro, and Yonezawa--all towns rich in Japanese tradition, history, and culture--via scenic mountain roads. Regarded as an important tourist hub of the Tohoku Region, the Ura-bandai Royal Hotel is surrounded by a long list of sightseeing spots and is at the intersection of several major tourist routes.
