Bamdai Azuma Skyline 

OVERVIEW: Exploring the beauty and culture of Japan on a motorcycle is a fantastic opportunity for any adventurist. For that reason, the choice of a starting point needs to be strategic and well planned. The Bamdai-Azuma Skyline is the route that will take your motorcycle Journey to a new level.


SIGHTSEEING: Before putting a key in the ignition of your motorcycle, you would have an opportunity to visit a couple of sights around Fukushima 福島市, pronounced Fukushima-shi, the capital city of Fukushima Prefecture. Must see places are the hot springs in Iizala, Takayu, or Tsuchiyu, all of which are great to relax before you take on the twisties of The Bandai-Azuma Skyline. The lakes were formed after stratovolcano Mount Bandai erupted in the 1800's gifting each lake with a different color by mixing post-eruption minerals into the water.

It runs from Fukushima to Kitakar for a total distance of 72 mi (116 km ) through Bandai Azuma Skyline and Lakeline, which won't leave any traveler feeling indifferent. The trip shouldn't take you more than 4 hours; although, the beautiful skyline might distract you, so make sure to plan a couple of stops and take life-lasting pictures to remind your friend and family about an amazing trip you had.
