Tsurigane Caveつりがね洞

Special Terrain

Tsurigane Cave is located in the city of Kuji in Iwate Prefecture. Before it was destroyed in the 1896 Sanriku Earthquake, a bell-shaped rock hung from the ceiling of the cave, giving it its name. It is located along the Kosode Coast in Sanriku Fukko National Park, and the now-empty cave is a symbol of the region's recovery. During the summer solstice season in June, visitors can see the rising sun shining directly into the mouth of the cave.

          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.
