Jododaira Visitor Center

<p>Jododaira Visitor Center, located at an altitude of 1500 m, stands partway along the <a href="">Bandai-Azuma Skyline</a> sightseeing road. Jododaira acts as a base to spend the day hiking nearby mountain routes, including Mt. Higashi-Azuma (1,975 m) and Mt. Issaikyo (1,949 m). For those who don&rsquo;t fancy a long hike, the 1-hour round trip walk up and around the crater at Mt. Azuma Kofuji (1,705 m) is perfect, as it is a very short walk from Jododaira Visitor Center. The Azuma mountains are all totally unique, and are great places to enjoy local flora and fauna. If hiking in this area, please be mindful that the altitude reaches close to 2000 m, so make sure to take equipment necessary in the event of a sudden weather change. The Jododaira area is also prone to high volcanic gas levels, so it is a good idea to check whether the area is open to visitors before making the drive up the mountain roads.</p>

Mt. Azuma-Kofuji

<p>Every year in spring, as the snow melts away it leaves behind the shape of a giant white rabbit on the side of Mt. Azuma-Kofuji. This snow-made rabbit is called the &ldquo;seeding rabbit&rdquo; and it signals to the people of Fukushima that the farming season has come.</p><p>No matter when you decide to visit Mt. Azuma-Kofuji, you can always experience the beauty of this awe-inspiring natural landscape.</p><p>Mt. Azuma-Kofuji is actually an active volcano. It has an appealing symmetry to it, and a soft conical shape; it is because of these classic features that it was named Kofuji, or &quot;little Fuji&quot;, after the iconic Japanese mountain.</p><p>Thanks to the volcanic ground, the area has given birth to many nearby onsen areas which are perfect for relaxing, such as <a href="">Tsuchiyu Onsen</a> and <a href="">Takayu Onsen</a>.</p><p>It&rsquo;s also a great destination for those who decide to drive through the area as the <a href="">Bandai-Azuma Skyline</a> happens to pass just below the crater of Mt. Azuma-Kofuji. It&rsquo;s just a short hike up to the crater and there are plenty of other great trails in the area. Near the crater, along the roadway, stands <a href="">Jododaira Visitor Center</a>, which offers visitors a place to park, rest up, get a snack, and maybe even buy some souvenirs. It&rsquo;s the perfect spot to take a break and explore one of the many short hiking routes to stretch out your muscles after a long car ride.</p><p>Circle the crater of Mt. Azuma-Kofuji on a relaxed 40-minute walk and&mdash;if you&rsquo;re lucky&mdash;enjoy gorgeous views of Fukushima City, <a href="">Mt. Bandai</a>, and the Urabandai area. But do watch your step as the ground can be uneven and even slippery on grey days. The mountain is open from spring to autumn every year.</p>

Design Your Own Shirakawa Daruma

<p>There are records of Shirakawa Daruma (Japanese traditional dolls) being sold as far back as the feudal reign of the Niwa Domain in 1627. Current Shirakawa Daruma are known as &ldquo;Shirakawa Tsurugame Shochikubai Daruma.&rdquo; The faces of these dolls are painted to incorporate various animals and plants, with the eyebrows representing cranes, the mustache representing a turtle, the ears representing pines and plum trees, and the beard representing bamboo or pine trees. All of these images are thought to bring good luck. The daruma is known to be a very classical, lucky talisman, started by Matsudaira Sadanobu, the lord of Shirakawa, when he hired the renowned painter Tani Buncho to paint the now famous face on the daruma doll. Once every year a large <a href="">Shirakawa Daruma Market</a> is held to celebrate and sell the beloved daruma dolls. You can paint your own daruma at the two daruma workshops in town!</p>
