View Point07


A crater lake with an altitude of 1,120 m created by the 1888 eruption of Mt. Bandai, which is written as "Aka-numa" and read as "Akanuma". The iron content of the lake water and mud at the bottom of the lake dyes swamps, coasts, and rocks on the surface of the water red. The white eruption that still erupts from the crater wall, which tells the intensity of the eruption, the occasional sulfur odor, the dark green red pine and the deep reddish-brown landscape make us feel the violent and strong vitality. Autumn, with the yellow accents of the autumn leaves, is also a beautiful viewpoint.
