Azuma Kofuji, Fukushima

4.5
Mount Azuma-kofuji is an active stratovolcano in Fukushima prefecture, Japan.It has a conical-shaped crater and as the name "Kofuji" (small Mount Fuji) suggests, the shape of Mount Azuma is like that of Mount Fuji. Mount Azuma's appealing symmetrical crater and the nearby fumarolic area with its many onsen have made it a popular tourist destination.The Bandai-Azuma Skyline passes just below the crater, allowing visitors to drive to within walking distance of the crater and other various hiking trails on the mountain. There is also a visitor center along the roadway near the crater, where a collection of eateries, facilities, a parking lot, and a stop for buses from Fukushima Station are located.The Azuma volcanic group contains several volcanic lakes, including Goshiki-numa, the 'Five Colored Lakes'.Each Spring, as the snow melts away, a white rabbit appears on the side of Mount Azuma. The melting snow shaped like a rabbit is known as the 'seeding rabbit' and signals to the people of Fukushima that the farming season has come.

  • If both sides of the road went west from the foot of Fukushima, has advanced in the foliage until it suddenly turned into the wilderness and arrived at the "paradise flat" parking lot. Parking fee is ¥ 500. After the visitor center from the scientific knowledge of the "1 hour" handy go on the hike. We pile nameta I say I hoped we were equipped with climbing equipment. Are wind tight and umbrella from useful Kappa level or higher in the manual is. Remember the illusion like walking more than 2800 m of central mountain forest limit on visitor centre in altitude of 1600 m, kofuji at 1707 m, but smells of terpenes in Pine Bush. "Clockwise" and was written in the visitor center, on the day of your number according to the sect counterclockwise walked into the (Imperial Palace runs the same orientation). 12:00 when the North is starting 8:30 at about re steep 10-11:00 half-near, so certainly clockwise down is easier, and the correct direction. Landscapes on the planet I don't think, was an impressive trip.

  • Fall foliage season, the parking lot was crowded. Rest house has souvenirs, snacks, ice cream, etc. You can turn to climb in about 20 minutes. Proximity to parking trekking shoes, sneakers or leather shoes, low heel pumps were climbing in various shape. Is distinctive enough from Fukushima station and kofuji know Fuji shaped.

  • We went to hike there now because they say that this is the peak season of the area in the autumn. We climbed up to the volcano and walked around the crater. The way up is a bit tiring, the steps are ...  more »

  • Wouldn't 1 hour from paradise if you're slowly turning and easy climbing. The feeling is basically the stepped path uphill, turn around. Provision of stair-step, initially, was equipped with clean though. Soil runoff is competition over lower hurdles on a slant perfectly. However, that may not say the underdeveloped locations around freely. And carved surfaces, more environments will be getting worse.

  • You can go by car, bike or bicycle might be (quite hard) to pure flat parking. Kofuji, front parking lot is a good walk. Your body is weak or wheelchair users are tough. Climb up to the top and enjoy the horseshoe-shaped caldera. You can walk around with gltsu. Very good breakfast would open during the week for the period of autumn and the holidays go is suspicious. It was invisible where fog is really a few meters when they went after a summer rain. Invisible what is made by several people and wanted to show you the wonderful views, was disappointing. (And at any rate,) go look at the official page, we recommend that you want. Hydrogen sulfide? Road can't go deep gas, so be careful.
