The five-colored volcanic ponds of Mt. Bandai
Goshiki-numa, or Five-Colored Ponds, in Fukushima Prefectures were formed from a deadly volcanic eruption of nearby Mt. Bandai in July 1888. These volcanic lakes are vibrantly colored with yellows, greens, reds, and blues thanks to the minerals from the eruption. There is a 4-km nature trail that connects the lakes. It is not a difficult trail and you walk through nicely shaded areas full of wild flowers and mossy ancient trees. The lakes change colors depending on the season and weather. When I was there in September, the main colors were vibrant turquoise and potion-like yellow-greens.

"Rainy Day at Fukushima's Jorakuen
A traditional garden hidden in the city"
Jorakuen was designed and built by a master gardener who worked in Kyoto for many years. Although built in the early 1980's, the garden has a very traditional feel. Visitors can enjoy many different views throughout the year due to changing seasons. It is most beautiful in fall and during the June iris festival.
For more information, visit the garden's website.
