Iwate

What is Iwate?

A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region’s delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you’ll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.

Getting Around

Sitting against a backdrop of fantastic mountains, Iwate’s capital city, Morioka, is not only a highlight of the prefecture but a transport hub in the center of the Tohoku region. Flying to Iwate-Hanamaki Airport, visitors can pop over to Morioka on a direct limousine bus in just 50 minutesーor, even easier, take the Tohoku or Akita Shinkansen a couple of hours north to Morioka.
