Review of Morioka History and Culture Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2016/02/04 Worth a quick visit while youre in the area.
This museum took us no more than 30 minutes to go through. I went mainly for the armour and clothing, which were beatiful. The lack of English means that its hard for english speakers to fully...
Reviewed:2016/01/01 Interesting exhibits though no English
Stayed 1 night in Morioka and found there wasnt much to do or see. The museum has good exhibits but no translations so as long as you can appreciate aesthetics with no additional information its...
Reviewed:2015/11/15 A fine museum, but not one of the greats
The museum has a nice little collection, including superb lacquerware and armor. It tells the story of Morioka, but pales in comparison with others I had visited in Tohoku.

          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.
