The two most famous landmarks in the town of Inawashiro are Mt. Bandai and Lake Inawashiro, both of which have been designated as national park areas. Mt. Bandai offers hiking, skiing, and snowboarding opportunities, while Lake Inawashiro is a great place to enjoy camping, swimming, and watersports.
The town also draws some 100,000 visitors every spring to see the famous Kannonji River cherries, while the Nakanosawa Hot Springs are known for producing more water than any other hot springs in Japan. Tatsusawa-fudo Falls are a popular location for films and TV dramas, and the Hideyo Noguchi Memorial Museum chronicles the achievements of the world-famous bacteriologist. These and other attractions make Inawashiro one of Japan's leading tourist destinations for those seeking year-round enjoyment of its culture and stunning natural beauty.
