about fukushima city

Welcome to Fukushima City!

Fukushima City is the capital of Fukushima Prefecture, the gateway to the Tohoku region. With a population of around 293,000 people, Fukushima City abounds with historical and natural sites such as the Bandai-Asahi National Park, a volcanic chain that runs beneath the Bandai-Azuma mountains giving rise to a host of magnificent onsens (hot springs). The onsens centred around the areas of Iizaka, Takayu, and Tsuchiyu are considered among some of the greatest onsens in Japan. Fukushima City also features the well-known Hanamiyama Park which is a sea of color and cherry blossoms in spring. In autumn a beautiful array of colored leaves can be seen while driving on the Bandai-Azuma Skyline. Delicious fruits can be tasted throughout the year, which is why Fukushima is known as the “Fruit Kingdom“. Please come to Fukushima for the beautiful nature, friendly people, relax in an onsen and experience the heart of Japanese hospitality.
