This Iwate tradition boasts over 400 years of history.

Filled with things to see, a variety of parades are held featuring the dear dance, a folk performance art; and the kagura gongen-mai, a dance performed to traditional court music in which the dancers embody Shinto gods.

          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.
