Souvenirs

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.

宮沢賢治作品が好きなので盛岡出張の際には必ずこちらに立ち寄ります。お土産店の裏側にコーヒーショップがあります。
カウンターでゆっくりするだけても落ち着けます。
そういえば、雨ニモ負ケズの手ぬぐいが見つかりませんでした。

居心地の良い場所。

朝一番でゆっくり雨上がりの木を眺めながら、丁寧に入れられた美味しいコーヒーとくるみクッキーを頂く至福の時間・・・

注意してほしいのは、珈琲館は中で撮影禁止のため、SNSにアップするのが目的の人は、来ない方がいいです。

混んでいても、相席希望や、スマホのシャッター音で雰囲気を壊すのはやめてもらいたいと切に思う...

無料の展示もありがたいんです。

          around-area-map

          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.
