Enjoy the heart of Tohoku

Welcome to Ichinoseki, the second largest city in Iwate Prefecture, both in area and population.
It’s at the center of economy, culture and education of Southern Iwate and Northern Miyagi and functions as a hub of Central Tohoku.

 Glorious, authentic treasures true to the region await.
Indulge in the beauty of the changing seasons on Mt. Kurikoma, the magnificent scenery at Genbikei and Geibikei gorges, the unique culinary experience of 'mochi honzen' and the rich history of our neighboring town, World Heritage Site Hiraizumi, a remnant of the golden age.
