A Refreshing Stay Amidst Stunning Nature by the Lakeside in Fukushima

Enjoy a sublime view of Mt. Bandai from this relaxed guesthouse

Less than 300 kilometers north of Tokyo, you will find Bandai Lakeside Guesthouse perched on the shores of glistening Lake Sohara. Surrounded by forested natural landscapes, the guesthouse exudes tranquility and serenity. Set within the renowned all-season resort area of Bandai-Asahi National Park, the guesthouse's superb location offers guests easy access to a variety of outdoor activities no matter the season.

In the winter, strap on a pair of snowshoes and traverse trails blanketed in white to discover remarkable frozen ponds and waterfalls with a hiking tour. For a touch more adrenaline, ski or snowboard down the powdery slopes of nearby ski resorts, a mere half an hour away. Visit during spring when fresh growth transforms the landscape into shades of green and witness the picturesque flush of cherry blossoms that frame nearby Tsurugajo Castle. Escape the city heat in summer and take a canoe or kayak out onto the glimmering, cool lake. Or perhaps wait until the autumn leaves make their appearance, painting the hiking trails in their warm hues.

For a more personalized stay, organize a customized tour to see the best of the Urabandai area. English-speaking staff will happily curate a tour to suit your needs and provide detailed information on the area. Relax amid nature in this cozy lakeside guesthouse in Tohoku, accessible in a bit over three hours from Tokyo by the Tohoku Shinkansen along with local trains and buses, with pickup service (reservation required) at the final stop of your journey.
