Park Etiquette

In order for everyone to have a pleasant experience, the visitors to the national parks are advised to respect nature and observe the following:

  • Do not throw away any trash.
  • Do not pick wild flowers/damage plants.
  • Do not feed wild animals.
  • No hunting or fishing.
  • No smoking while walking.
  • Bonfires / recreational fires are only permitted in designated areas.

  • The facilities inside the National Park are situated in nature, and are created utilizing the natural terrain. Be careful not to injure yourself, and use the park facilities such as the pathways and trails at your own risk.

  • Bandai-Asahi National Park is inhabited by Asiatic black bears. To avoid accidents with bears, make an effort to prevent unexpected bear encounters.

  • There are no restrooms at the summit of Mt. Bandai or on the mountain climbing trail. Please make sure you use the restrooms before departing on your climb. Additionally, plastic bags for toilets are sold at the rest hut at Kobo Shimizu (Koboshimizugoya and Okabegoya) and visitors may also use the plastic bags for toilets installed at each hut.
