The Bandai-san, also known as Aizu-Bandai-san, Aizu-Fuji and Aizu-ne, is a volcanic mountain chain in the Fukushima Prefecture. It's highest peak is the Bandai-san at 1'816 m. Other peaks of the group are Akahani-yama (1'430 m) and Kushigamine (1'636 m).

The 1888 eruption led to the large collapse of the northern part of volcanic body and changed the landforms around Bandai-san and formed many lakes and swamps. Before the 1888 eruption, the volcano had one more peak (Kobandai 1'760 m) which collapsed because of the eruption.

The Mount Bandai-San is part of Bandai-Asahi Nationalpark and one of the 100 famous Japanese mountains.
