    Iwate Ninohe-shi
    This famous spot to see plum trees is located in the Kagitori, Fukuoka, Ninohe City. A 400-year-old plum tree has been planted on the grounds, along with the garden ruins of Masazane Kunohe, Nanbu's vassal. The six-petal plum blossom blooms from mid-April every year on a tree five meters high and divided into three trunks from the root.

Iwate Areas


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.
