Reviewed:2018/03/03 small but enjoyable
It is a small museum of the writer. Pretty interesting but unfortunately there are only limited English signs and descriptions.

車で行かない人は記念館に着くために400段近くある階段をまず登ります。息切れ必須です。基本的に見る施設。子供向けのワークシートが準備されていたり、外国語対応ガイドがあったりとどんな人でも楽しめるようにと対応してました。近くの童話村に比べて目を引くものはあまりなかったイメージです。

          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.
