Bandai Azuma Skyline



Important Update: At 1:00 pm on Saturday September 15 the Volcanic Warning for Azumayama was raised to Level 2. This means that the Bandai-Azuma Skyline including Jododaira and Mt. Azuma-Kofuji are currently inaccessible to visitors. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please check the following link for further updates:
The Bandai-Azuma Skyline is 29 km alpine road with a maximum elevation of 1622 m that winds through the Azuma Range. This scenic route is known as “the road that runs across the sky.” The scenic route offers impressive panoramic views of Fukushima City and magnificent views of the surrounding area. Featuring snow-lined corridors in early Spring, a fiery assortment of colors in late Autumn, sub-alpine forests, and other-worldly volcanic landscapes, the Bandai-Azuma Skyline captivates travelers from near and far with its breathtaking array of scenery.
