Bandai Azuma Skyline



Update (02/07/19):
On 17 June 2019 the Japan Meteorological Agency (Sendai Branch) announced that the Volcanic Warning for Azumayama was reduced to Level 1. This means that the Bandai-Azuma Skyline and Jododaira will be accessible from June 28, 2019. But due to the potential build-up of volcanic gas, the section of road between Fudosawa Bridge and Jododaira will close each night between  5:00 pm and 8:00 am. The other sections of the road will remain open. Follow us on Facebook to get the latest information.


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.
