Kogensya Main Branch

Kogensya is a store located on a site extending from JR Morioka Station to the Kitakami River that specializes in traditional handicraft products such as Nambu ironware and Urushi lacquerware. The items on sale are not limited to Iwate Prefecture’s own specialty products; they also include handicraft products from all over Japan, including Okinawan glassware, Shusaigama-ware ceramics from Shimane Prefecture, etc. Kogensya’s founder, Oikawa Shiro, was a classmate of Miyazawa Kenji, the writer of children’s stories who is one of Iwate Prefecture’s most famous authors, and was involved in the publication of “The Restaurant of Many Orders,” a collection of Miyazawa’s children’s stories. Kogensya’s Majieru-kan building and Kahi-kan café both have many items relating to Miyazawa Kenji on display, making Kogensya a popular place for Miyazawa Kenji enthusiasts to visit.

    いーはとーぶアベニュー材木町にある宮沢賢治との係わりの深い場所です。賢治が童話集「注文の多い料理店」を出版し、当時はほとんど売れなかった時代をともにした出版社。店の奥、中庭に、注文の多い料理店 出版の地の碑や烏の北斗七星の石柱、原稿などの展示館があり、賢治との係わりの深さが感じられる場所です。訪ねた際は休館中でしたが、喫茶室もあるので、通りの散策の際、立ち寄って楽しんでください。
