Kenji Miyazawa Monument宮沢賢治歌碑

Other Historic Site/Building

Located about a 130-minute drive from Morioka-minami Interchange on the Tohoku Expressway or a one-minute walk from the Okujodogahama bus stop, this monument built in front of the Jodogahama Rest House is one of many in the prefecture for Kenji Miyazawa, who was born in Hanamaki City. It was built in October 1996 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Kenji Miyazawa's birth, and is inscribed with the tanka poem “Beautiful and beaming, briny velvet, sea tangles were spread all over the shore of the serene light,” which he composed in July 1917 when he visited Jodogahama with the east coast visiting group from Hanamaki-machi.

          Iwate Areas


          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.
