Today I visited Seishohama Beach of Lake Inawashiro in the outskirts of Koriyama. This has been one of the major flocking locations of migratory swans from Siberia every year. It was cloudy today but the swans were swimming or playing on the beach as shown in the picture above. In this picture alone swan count is about 40. There were some other groups nearby making the total count more than 100.

Here is a very short video where you can find the atmosphere and the familiar cries of swans.

On the way back I noticed near the beach a stone monument with a couple of lanterns for Mount Iide as shown above, which is located far away in Kitakata region. This may be because the mountain can be seen from here on a clear day.

If it were a clear day, I could have seen beautiful contrast of surrounding mountains and a blue sky as an example picture shown above which I took in March 2014. .

The location of Seishohama beach is at the southern edge of Lake Inawashiro. It is within Konanmachi district of Koriyama City. The public transportation to get there is to use a local Aizu Bus from JR Joko Station. From “Fukurafurumachi” bus stop you need 3km walk to the beach.

The exact route and locations are shown in a map below. The map can be scaled up and down with a click and scroll.

Tadami Town gives us the finest deep white snow scenery in this time of year. Today, I walked from Shiozawa village to JR Tadami Station along the national R252, which was mostly along the Tadami River. The route, which was about 10km long, showed me fantastic snow scenery along the way with snow-capped surrounding mountains. Photo above was one of them, viewed from the sidewalk of Yagisawa snow shed. A mountain in the back was Mt. Asakusadake (1585m), one of Best 100 Mountains in Japan, and the river in front was the Tadami River.
Early this morning I took a train from JR Koriyama Station to Aizukawaguchi Terminal of JR Tadami Line. Then I changed to the substitute bus service operated by JR, because train operation for this section was still suspended, and got off at Aizushiozawa bus stop. The train operation is scheduled to resume by the end of FY 2021.

Some other views which captivated my eyes were shown below in the order along the way. Please look at the map in the bottom for each location.
