    Iwate Ofunato-shi Massakicho Ohama 280-1

    宿泊先でつばきまつりをやっていると伺い、折角の機会なので行ってきました。館内には日本の椿以外にも外国の椿もあり、なかなか目にすることのない椿を見ることができました。閉館間際に行ったので人はおらず、館長さんが説明をして下さいました。本当に親切で丁寧で助かりました。 苗も様々な種類があり、手頃な価格だったので迷いつつ2種類購入してきました。また、つばきまつりの時期には行ってみたいです。

    Iwate Kamaishi-shi Suzukocho 15-2

    JR釜石駅のすぐ近くで、入館料も無料ととても気軽に利用できます。釜石には製鉄所があったことから、戦時中、本州で初めて艦砲射撃を受けて市街地に甚大な被害が出たそうです。空襲のあった街は多いですが、艦砲射撃の資料を見るのは初めてだったので、勉強になりました。

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.
