What to Expect

Explore the hidden gems of Japan's best kept secret with your JR Pass! You can visit hidden world heritage site by Shinkansen (bullet train) in one day! There is world heritage site called Hiraizumi in Iwate prefecture (located in northern part of Japan). Hiraizumi has two famous temples, Chuson-ji and Motsu-ji. The Golden Hall, created under the aegis of the founder of the Northern Fujiwaras, Kiyohira, must be seen as a hidden treasure that illustrated Paradise and prayed for peace.
