Morioka Handi-Works Square

Morioka Handi-Works Square offers you a chance to learn how the traditional crafts are made by hands, along with craft work experiences.

You will feel as if you'd stepped back in time at "Nanbu Magariya(Bent House)", a farmhouse unique to the hourse-breeding region, constructed in the late Edo period.

Koiwai Farm
Koiwai Farm is an expansive private farm which spreads 3,000 hectares located at the base of Mt. Iwate. The farm is famous for milk, cheese, yogurt, and ice cream made on site, as well as the delicious local cuisines served at the restaurant. Make sure to try the rich gelato and soft serve ice cream using the fresh milk and eggs.
A lonesome cherry blossom tree
Set against the magnificent Mt. Iwata, a single cherry blossom tree spreads its roots across the vast garden field of Koiwai Farm. The tree was originally planted some 100 years ago to protect cattle from the heat and strong sunlight in summer. The single, dignified cherry blossom tree is a beautiful sight amidst the field of grass. You will certainly want to see this fantastic and striking scene with your own eyes. 

Amihari Onsen
Amihari Hot Spring, located on the southwestern flank of the dramatic Mt Iwate in the Towada-Hachimantai National Park, is a flowing sulfur hot spring with a history of 1300 years. You can heal yourself and warm up your cold body in the hot spring after a tiring day. 

* Transportation services to the Amihari Onsen main building is available for guests staying at the Amihari Onsen Hotel.
