Due to the eruption of Mount Bandai numerous lakes and marshes, including the beautiful Goshikinuma ponds, were born.
Among them, Lake Hibara is where the largest and most beautiful islands float. The shoreline stretches for 31 km and the lake has a maximum depth of 31 m.

Sakura (cherry blossoms), fresh green leaves, autumn leaves, and snowy landscapes always give the best view.
グリーンシーズンは You can simply enjoy driving around the lake, especially from May to June when there is fresh, green growth.
In winter, the surface of the lake is frozen, making it possible to walk on the ice. The colourful tents set up for ice fishing make up part of the wintery landscape.
