Visit iwate

Known for its striking geography composed of rocky oceanside cliffs, two striking mountain ranges, and the fertile Kitakami River basin, Iwate Prefecture is an ideal destination for those seeking to experience one of the most tradition-rich regions of Japan. Cultural attractions like historic Buddhist temples are complemented by bountiful opportunities to interact with and experience the nation’s natural landscape. The Iwate Prefecture is an area in which blooming cherry blossoms and sandy beaches are not even a day’s journey from high alpine slopes and active volcanoes. For those seeking less leisure and more adventure, hiking and mountaineering opportunities abound. While sightseeing, skiing, and basking in hot springs are certainly some of the most popular activities one may enjoy in Iwate Prefecture, there are also a wealth of culturally and politically important attractions. The city of Hiraizumi, for example, has long been one of the most important in the Tohoku Region and at one time rivaled even Kyoto, the national capital, in sophistication and power.

No description of Iwate would be complete, however, without mentioning the capital city of Morioka and its famed, varied styles of noodles. Known as the “Three Great Noodles of Morioka”, Wanko Soba, Ramen, and Jajamen can be enjoyed at numerous specialized restaurants and local food establishments. Morioka is also known for its cast-iron artisan work.
