Hanamiyama Park

Reviewed By Ken N - Fukushima, Japan

Disclaimer: I'm a US citizen living in Fukushima since 2008, and imagine spending the rest of my career, even the rest of my life, here. So, maybe I'm biased.
Hanamiyama (花見山、flower-viewing-mountain) is just a short ride from Fukushima Station on special buses that are arranged during peak cherry-blossom season. The people of Fukushima take good care of this attraction, and good care of visitors.
Yes, attendance fell during the viewing season that came a month after the March 11, 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake. Roads and rails were still damaged, and people around the world were anxious about the nuclear power plant accident.
Now, Hanamiyama is as busy as it ever was, if not busier. But the beautiful environment brings out the best in already well-mannered people. Strangers exchange cameras to take better-than-selfie group photos. Fast and slow walkers are graciously accommodated on walking paths, and there are always a few less traveled paths (perhaps a bit too narrow or steep for some) where you can enjoy a little solitude even on a crowded day.
People living here year-round can, and do, enjoy Hanamiyama year after year. Why not join us?

Bandai-Azuma Skyline

Reviewed By Matt_Japan

Very exciting driving course with Super Special Superb view. Near the quite high area, the view of wild landscape looks like a planet other than earth because of volcanic gas. The other lower areas also have great deep mountain views. We cannot drive this road during winter, so we have to go there from the middle of April to Mid November. From May to October we may go to the road during night if the road is not cold. We can spend starry night, we can also see many shooting stars when there is not the moon light.

Fukushima Prefectural Museum of Art

Reviewed By purigee

This museum is not hard to access and find if you take the train from the main station but if you walk it is behind the forest and hard to find. It is a quiet museum with many Rodin sculptures and a library next door.
