7 days in Fukushima - Help with things to do

Hey Tripadvisor Peepz,

I am travelling to Japan, Fukushima, in March of 2018 with my partner + one of his friends. The two guys will be spending 7 days drifting on the Ebisu track - which I am not that interested in participating in.

I will spend a couple of days at the track maybe, so I am looking for the best activities to do, during the day, as a solo woman traveller? I am open to all suggestions, also travelling via train etc. out of Fukushima if required. I am a keen walker/hiker so really am open to all possibilities.

Thank you in advance :)

March would still be late winter in Tohoku area, with most mountains over 1000m still covered in snow. Thus, hiking may not be right sport at that time. If you like skiing/snowboarding, consider Zao onsen town in Yamagata nearby.

For sightseeing, consider Yamadera, Matsushima coastline about 30min from Sendai by frequent JR commuter trains, though in different directions.

Aizu Wakamatsu to the west of Fukushima city is an old town worth visiting as well.

refer to Japan guide for more info.

I especially recommend Nanuka-machi in Aizuwakamatsu and Ouchijuku.

Kitakata's ramen and the streets are also famous.

Perhaps the Inawashiro ski resort is still open.

I have been to Inawashiro ski area, Gran Deco and Alts bandai.

It is nice to walk around Goshikinuma but I think that there is snow.

Please refer also here.
