Urabandai Lake Resort hotel is the ultimate location for a comfortable 'staycation' surrounded by the breathtaking nature of Bandai-Asahi National Park. Not only is the resort conveniently located to access many outdoor activities available in the area, it is also close enough to drive to the historical town of Aizu-Wakamatsu for a day-trip. Unlike many isolated hot-spring resorts, in the evening there are plenty of on-site entertainment facilities to be enjoyed including a cocktail bar, darts room, karaoke and varied dining options. During the day, the onsite adventure guiding team offers a plethora of activities to be explored including hiking in the nearby 'Goshikinuma' (five-coloured lakes) area, canoeing on Lake Hibara, and snow-shoeing tours. Also in winter, the resort offers free shuttle access to three major ski resorts in the area, making it a popular choice with local and international winter sports enthusiasts.
