Recently I had a wonderful Mother’s Day. It was extra special for me because it was my birthday. So it was my day double!
In celebration we went by train to Aizu-Wakamatsu City in western Fukushima Prefecture. First we took a train to Koriyama City and then transfered to another train heading out west. These photos are from that second journey.
Japan is so beautiful in the spring! It’s a great time to look around.
That’s Mt. Bandai. It’s a famous mountain, and it is also a volcano. It had a major eruption in 1888, one of the worst in recent Japanese history.
Do you think these flowers were planted just for us?
Here we are at the train station. Little decorations are around. Aizu-Wakamatsu and its surrounding area is a sightseeing spot–probably the most well-known and visited in Fukushima Prefecture.
It’s an akabeko!
Next week let’s explore Aizu-Wakamatsu City. Stay tuned!
