Hello, I'm Yuko. I've lived in Iwate, northern part of Japan for more than 15 years.
Iwate is far from Tokyo and transportation around here is not so convenient, but I love peaceful and wonderful Iwate. I would be happy to help you enjoy your trip without inconvenience.
Hiraizumi in Iwate was designated as UNESCO World Heritage site in 2011. It is well-known for Konjiki-do, Golden Hall, but many other things, such as food, nature and culture, must attract you, too.
Why don't you gain hands-on experience of deep Iwate?
I'm looking forward to seeing you soon!!

Ichinoseki is usually a transfer point for visiting the incredible culture and history of Hiraizumi, the nearby World Heritage Area. Within limited time, Yuko walked me around a few of the key sites of Ichinoseki Town, the first being a restored samurai house from those fairly recent days when Ichinoseki was a castle town.
