Takita Kogei (滝田工芸)

Souvenirs

This Japanese umbrella workshop is located approximately a 10-minutesbus from Hanamaki Station, and one-minute walk from Miyazawa Kenji Museum bus stop. The workshop makes and sells Hanamaki umbrellas that have been traditionally made here since the Kyowa period. Previously, there were around 120 Japanese umbrella stores in the prefecture, but Takita Kogei is now the only one remaining. The umbrellas are made from local madake bamboo and the paper used is Mino Japanese paper. In addition to paper umbrellas and coarse oilpaper umbrellas, the workshop also makes wall-mounting umbrellas and mini umbrellas, which are very popular as souvenirs.

          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.
