  • After you check into the hotel after work in time, so the Park was run. No Castle Tower, the Castle and views up and down. Beautiful night view from the observation deck. Sees Iwate was cloudy at this time, but a more beautiful I wonder?.

  • Counter-clockwise snail go station take station History Culture Hall, old Morioka Bank, have seen funny Takuboku Ishikawa and Kenji Museum. Back back train station by taxi. Try a good stone wall in the Park, Sakura shrine Temple came to. Kenji's monument. Train time fixed by time around because you've ever stayed. Taxi tours to many was taught will be good for him. Local attractions like tabi, will maintain.
