Exploring the Vast Culture and Nature of Iwate and Akita

Divided by the long, narrow Ou Mountains, Iwate and Akita prefectures in the Tohoku region stretch from the Pacific Ocean in the east, to the Japan Sea in the west. With the freedom of a rental car, we began at Morioka Station and traversed our way across the region, engaging with the locals, unwinding in the onsen, and discovering the rich culture and history that permeates this diverse landscape.
