Ouchijuku

Fukushima is the third largest of Japan's 47 prefectures and stretches over 150 kilometers from the Pacific coast into the mountainous interior of northeastern Honshu. The evacuation zone around the nuclear plant makes up less than 10% of its area, while the remaining 90% are safe for tourists to visit. Wide areas of western Fukushima, in particular, escaped heavy contamination, including the mountainous interior around the historic city of Aizu-Wakamatsu.

Reached in just over an hour by shinkansen from Tokyo, Fukushima offers ample of natural beauty, historic sites and leisure activities, including spectacular volcanic landscapes, excellent hot spring waters, outstanding cherry blossom and autumn color spots, prominent castle towns, pleasant ski resorts and Japan's first ever theme park, the Spa Resort Hawaiians.
