    Iwate Pref. Hachimantaishi ツキ Semboku, Akita prefecture
    At this rest area located near the peak of Hachimantai, there is a restaurant and souvenir shop where you can buy local products. Also, the Observatory spot also makes this a great location for looking out over Hachimantai. The rest house has one floor above ground and two basement floors—the first floor features the observatory spot and a rest area with tons of information on the natural surroundings of Hachimantai. The basement first floor has a section for light meals like udon and curry, and a section with sightseeing information. In the hall of retail shops on the basement second floor, you can purchase Hachimantai original goods.

    Its located at the peak of Mt. Hachimantai, a border of Akita and Iwate. Its kind of like a hub to hike around. You can park your car there, and then start your hike to the trails. There is an...

    This Japanese-style restaurant is located inside Cassiopeia Messe, a multipurpose facility located next to Ninohe Station in Moriai, Ishikiridokoro, Ninohe City. It serves dishes made with local ingredients, including Oritsume Sangen pork and Kiraho rice.

    駅の近くで便利なレストランです。万人が利用する価格のメニューが少ないのが残念です。二戸は鶏肉、豚肉、牛肉全ての産地なはずが、それらがいまいちな感じがしました。

    Iwate Iwate-gun Kuzumakimachi Ekari 1-36
    This restaurant is located approximately an one-minute walk from Ekarigawa bus stop, after riding the bus for approximately a 50-minute bus from Tohoku Shinkansen Iwate-Numakunai Station. The soba restaurant is proud to serve 100% locally made soba noodles with buckwheat that has been ground by the water wheel since the Taisho period. The soba has a smooth texture, and uses eggs and tofu as a binding agent. There is an open hearth inside the renovated old Japanese-style house, and customers can also enjoy salt-grilled Japanese salmon or dengakumochi, which is made with either plain or buckwheat flour. Reservations can also be made to experience making soba noodles.

    仕事がてら紹介されて訪問。 自家栽培のそばを水車でひいて手打ちしているそう。 その見た目が最高です。肝心の写真はお店の人に配慮して撮影しませんでしたが… そばが三角形! 茹でて味噌で食べるというもの。 このような蕎麦の食べ方も地方にはあるんだなあと、しみじみ。 ニンニク入りの味噌だったので、深々と降る雪でも体が温まる蕎麦でした!

    Iwate Iwate-gun Iwatemachi Numakunai 7-21
    "This restaurant is located approximately a 30-minute drive from Takizawa Interchangeon the Tohoku Expressway. Its motto is dishes made locally for local consumption, and the restaurant is situated in the Kakikuke-Kou community space, which was created by renovating the main wing of a house and its storehouse. The lunch menu's “Iwate Town Hamburg Set Meal”, which is an exclusive 10th anniversary steak, made with a special blueberry wine and Omori miso demiglace sauce, is well recommended. The ""Good Old Gran's Chinese noodle"" is also popular. And at night, customers can enjoy the Japanese-style pub's food and local drinks."

    お客様とランチをする際には毎回使わせて頂いています。 今回は長いも長生き焼きうどんを頂きました。あっさりして食べやすかったです。 観光、デート、家族でも使えるのでおすすめです。

    昭和を感じるレトロな店構え、店内に入るとタイムスリップした懐かしさが漂います。 醤油ペースの琥珀色のスープ(鶏ガラがメインかな?)と太くストレート麺のコンビの「中華そば」は、家系ラーメンにはないシンプルさがあります。 チャーハンは、具沢山のお家チャーハン!「中華そば」のベストフレンドに推したいメニューです。メニューにはないけど、半チャーハンがオーダーできるのもおけまる!

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.
