This Iwate tradition boasts over 400 years of history. Elegant and gorgeous traditional festival floats decorated with dolls, cherry blossoms, and wisteria flowers are drawn along to the sounds of traditional Hanamaki hayashi music. 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.
