Head to the very center of Iwate Prefecture and you’ll find Tono, a relatively quiet city tucked away in a valley surrounded by mountains. What Tono lacks in size it makes up for in old stories and traditional cultural activities coming from the city’s strong links to folklore. Most famous as the birthplace of the kappa, you’ll find the imp-like mythical creature in all corners of the city luring in innocent passersby as they discover this magical little city. Despite its many attractions, the city isn’t particularly well set up for those without a car so if you plan on getting the train into Tono, be ready to enjoy an active day of cycling or a good few hours walking.
