Travellers who like to end days of exhilarating activity in commune with nature by unwinding in luxury rooms and a bathe in a hot spring should make their way to GranDeco Resort, Fukushima. High upon the verdant peaks of the Bandai-asahi National Park in the Tohoku Region, the hotel is the perfect homebase for exploring the nearby famous Mt. Bandai, visiting Lake Inawashiro (Japan’s 4th largest lake), or carving through powder snow. The hotel’s range of 104 rooms is diverse enough to accommodate any need, with a choice of tatami mats/futons or Western beds and space enough for two to six people. Every guest is able to admire the mountains they’ve conquered from their balcony and those with the superior, luxury, or suite rooms can even do so from their bathtub. The hotel also houses three restaurants serving Western (Clair), Japanese (Azuma), and Teppanyaki (Karamatsu) menus, a lounge, bar, conference and meeting rooms, banquet hall, swimming pool with Jacuzzi, and sauna. “Green Harmony” reflexology treatments are available at request as a great means of relaxation and skiiing, snowboarding, all-season hiking, snowshoe tours, and cross country skiiing trails are all accessible via the gondola lift and four quad lifts ascending to 1,590 meters (5,216ft) above sea-level.
