We went to hike there now because they say that this is the peak season of the area in the autumn. We climbed up to the volcano and walked around the crater. The way up is a bit tiring, the steps are high and not even but the view worths the effort. Around the crater there's no sidewalk or anything so I suggest hiking shoes as the ground is rocky and slippery. But even children could do it so it's not that difficult.
From there, we walked away to see the lake Goshikinuma which took some hours but the weather was nice so it wasn't too bad.
We went by rental car. We are living in Fukushima and planned to go by bus, but there's only two buses per day and it's really inconvenient. going by the earlier bus and coming home with the latter one, we could have had only 4 hours there which isn't enough if you want to see anything else besides the crater.
