Explore New Scenic Views from Urabandai, a Treasure Trove of Natural Beauty


Goshikinuma is one of the most famous scenic spots in Urabandai. It was formed in 1888 when an eruption caused the northern slope of Mt. Bandai to collapse, damming the river and forming hundreds of lakes and marshes. The 30 or so lakes and swamps in the area are known as Goshikinuma. The name “Goshiki (five colors)” comes from the various colors the surface of the water appears to be due to its volcanic composition and vegetation.

Yanaginuma is located near the west entrance of a 4-km-long hiking trail. The calm surface of the water reflects the surrounding trees, and the seasonal beauty of the pond, such as morning mist and autumn leaves, stands out. Enjoy the scene on a summer morning when the trees and the surface of the water turn a deeper shade of green due to the pouring rain.
