A lonesame cherry blossoms (an Edo-higanzakura) on the Koiwai Farm—Japan’s largest private comprehensive farm—was planted as a “shade tree” to protect cows from the harsh sunlight of summer around 1910. It usually blooms during Golden Week. The contrast of cherry blossoms with lingering snow on Mt. Iwate is gorgeous.

Iwate Main 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.
