Life / Living / Hospital Spots in Iwate Area

  • Hana Kobo LaLa Club
    Shopping
    Iwate Iwate-gun Shizukuishicho
    Located about a 17-minute drive from the Tohoku Expressway’s Morioka Interchange, this direct sales flower shop is the largest in the Tohoku region. The flowers produced on their own farms do not pass through the market, so they are cheaper than the market price, and there are many varieties that are not readily available elsewhere. There is an English garden and Christmas rose garden on site where you can take strolls. Shibazakura no Oka, which is completely dyed pink, is wonderful especially in mid-May. The adjacent “Farmer’s Restaurant LALA” offers simple and comforting dishes with a focus on local cuisine.

    Iwate Pref. Moriokashi Nakanohashidori 1-1-25

    As we tourists may not be familiar with the Takuboku and Kenji, the exhibits are not of much interests to us. However the building itself is well maintained. It is good to take a few pictures.

    Iwate Tono-shi Higashidatecho 1-2

    街歩きの途中、「立ち食い豆腐」とあるこの店に気が付きました。 おばちゃんに声をかけると「はいよ」という感じでざるどうふを盛ってくれて、しょうゆをかけていただきます。普通の冷奴よりちょっと柔らかめ。するするっと食べる感じが気持ちいいです。

Iwate Areas

around-area-map

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.
