Spend a couple of beautiful days admiring the colors of autumn in Fukushima from the comfort of your car. You’ll love zooming around the prefecture and seeing all that autumn has to offer. Have your camera ready to capture some of the best autumn vistas in the prefecture right outside your window.

First, rent a car at Fukushima Station, and make your way down the picturesque Bandai-Azuma Skyline where you’ll see trees and mountainous views on either side. The colors of autumn will surround you like a cozy blanket and you’ll want to take it slow to enjoy these brilliant leaves.

Next, drive the mountain road down to the Bandai-Azuma Lake Line and admire the reflections of the autumnal trees on the surface of the beautiful waters. Visit the fascinating Goshiki-Numa Ponds that change color throughout the day and marvel at the various shades of these volcano-created pools.

Finish your crimson leaf tour of Fukushima at To-no-hetsuri Crags where you can drink up the gorgeous vista of trees against the stony edifice before heading back to Shin-Shirakawa Station and ending your trip.
