Joudodaira Rest House

Joudodaira Rest House

This rest house is located on Joudodaira at an elevation of 1600 m, halfway up the Bandaiazuma Skyline. The first floor houses a shop selling products from Fukushima prefecture and a refreshment corner. You can dine at the restaurant on the second floor while enjoying the spectacular view. A highly recommended item on the menu is the Fuku-no-shima Gozen, a set meal of local dishes such as kodzuyu (a vegetable stew) and wappa-gohan (a sushi rice box). This is also the ideal location to use as a base for trekking in locations such as Azuma-Kofuji, Mt. Issaikyou, or Goshikinuma.

Our shop sells products, alcohol, and crafts from the prefecture. Recently, a committed Fukushima sake brewer won gold prize in the 2013 Annual Japan Sake Awards, so right now I recommend sake as a souvenir. The high season for alpine plants in this area is late June to late July. The scenery at this time is truly magnificent. Please make sure to come and visit.
