Ichinoseki / Hiraizumi is such a place!
Ichinoseki is the southernmost area of Iwate prefecture, located between Sendai and Morioka. The beautiful nature such as Mt. Kurikoma and Geibikei (get off at Geibikeiguchi) is attractive and it is popular as a sightseeing base in the world heritage Hiraizumi and Sanriku areas. Chuson-ji Temple (get off at Chusonji), which represents the cultural heritage of Hiraizumi is a treasure trove of Heian Buddhist art where more than 3,000 national treasures and important cultural properties such as the Konjikido Golden Hall is crowded with many tourists as a power spot. Genbikei Gorge (get off at Gembikei), located south of Chusonji Temple is a valley designated as a scenic natural monument with its dynamic rock surface, emerald green water flow, and beautiful scenery of the four seasons that color the riverbank. Ichinoseki's specialty is "Mochi Cuisine" which has more than 300 types. Especially famous is the mochi confectionery "Zunda Mochi" (green soybeans rice cake). The "flying dumplings" that are offered with unique performances in Genbikei are also worth a visit. There are many mountain roads in the Ichinoseki / Hiraizumi areas are hard to get around, therefore using the bus is easy and recommended. If you go around with an unlimited ride ticket, you can enjoy it at a great deal. Enjoy history and nature with all five senses while visiting the luxurious and elegant World Heritage Sites unique to this area.
