Amazing place to be as you can truly feel the serenity and pureness of this place. The most amazing part is that you can rent a kayak and take a ride along the lake, discovering some real natural beauty!

Goshiki-numa 福島五色沼was one of the stops during our 2016 Autumn leaf-viewing Trip. We took a lot of pictures at the peaceful lake, bright red/yellow autumn maple leaves and distant mountains. Don’t know why the lake carried a name-“5-colors”.

A lovely walk, even in summer. The path is fairly level and well maintained. Lots of lakes and viewpoints. Would like to do it again in autumn.

My wife and I liked the hike so much we walked the 3.7 km trail three times in our five day stay in the area. It can be a bit crowded from mid-morning to mid-afternoon, so if you can try to walk it earlier or...More

This is a very nice hike with views of a number of lakes that have been turned unreal colours of blue and green by volcanic sediment. The hike itself is pretty easy. It's not a paved path or anything, but it's not difficult. The lakes...More

It is an easy walk through the forest with beautiful views. The lakes have impressive colors. It is also possible to take a small row boat on one of the lake.

Beautiful 2 hour walk through the amazingly coloured lakes. Easy public access. Cute gift shop at the other end. Everyone says a quiet friendly 'konitchiwa' to eachother on the walk. Definitely worth a visit. Go early to avoid tourists and midday sun.

Red and yellow leaves match the blue ponds. Trails are flat for most of the part but will get muddy after rain. I also liked the waterfall "Onogawa Fudo" ten minutes drive from Goshikinuma.

had been there for 4 times and this was my 5th visit. during the maple leaves season, there are many beautiful spots for taking photos. Descending from the Yanagi-numa, don't miss Ao-numa, Ruri-numa and Koshomon-numa at the bottom. The whole hiking trail takes about 1...More

You can access these places by local train or bus, but you'd be better off renting a car. Goshikinuma can be accessed by bus, but it's a good 30-45 minute ride from the bus terminal at the train station. Public transport may... More
