  • Leave your car at the parking lot of the Park, walk in the Park. To explore the Park walk through the stone wall of the Morioka Castle was built as it is. Monument Park, was written in Ishikawa Takuboku, History Museum, Sakura shrine. Elevated position so the view should be good, but doesn't look at Iwate volcano because of the cloudy weather.

  • It is even if you're not interested in history as a place of recreation and relaxation loved by regional park. Sent in the Morioka Castle is so up and down, so walking shoes are recommended.

Look to the main train station for the most modern accommodations Morioka, with popular business hotels offering simple rooms, restaurants, and pools. Farther to the east, things get a little more characterful and atmospheric in traditional Japanese ryokans.
