I do speak some Japanese but my husband doesnt, and we both found this...
Reviewed:2015/05/12 Great if you understand Japaneese, but still good if you dont
Its well done, such a nice area with interaction and great for the kids. English is limited, which is understandable - but the interaction with the different things in the house made it fun anyway...

          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.
