Fukushima (福島) is the capital city of Fukushima Prefecture in the Tohoku Region of Japan. Located along the foothills of the Azuma mountain range about 40 kilometers inland from the Pacific Ocean, Fukushima is not a major tourist destination, but offers a variety of natural and seasonal attractions including hot springs, hiking trails in spectacular volcanic landscapes, and Hanamiyama, one of Japan's most pleasant cherry blossom spots.

Fukushima's city center lies 60 kilometers northwest of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and never had to be evacuated. Radiation levels remain several times above the pre-accident levels, but they do not pose a health threat to visitors.
