“Tohoku Region” is located in the northern part of Japan, comprised of six prefectures of Aomori, Iwate, Akita, Miyagi, Yamagata, and Fukushima.
The region is filled with charming attractions - the World Heritages of “Shirakami-sanchi” in Aomori and “Hiraizumi” in Iwate, temples/shrines that show you the essence of the Japanese history, beautiful landscapes with seasonal elements such as cherry blossoms, red/golden leaves, and soft rimes, as well as healing hot springs and local delicacies from the mountains and the sea.
The hub of Tohoku Region, “Sendai”, is only an hour and a half away from Tokyo by Shinkansen bullet train. It is so accessible.
This region offers you to experience the unspoiled landscape of Japan that you can never see in “Tokyo” and “Osaka”.
