About Morioka
 About 400 years ago, the history of Morioka began at the time when the Morioka lord of the Nanbu clan built his residential castle in the center of Morioka which was surrounded by three rivers. And Morioka prospered as a castle town and nowadays continues to develop as one of the major cities in the Tohoku district. Morioka, which is called “The City of Water and Greenery”, is blessed with beautiful nature and warmhearted citizens. The city also has a history and culture touched by the breath of Dr. Inazo Nitobe's spirit.



Festivals
 “Chagu Chagu Umakko” (every year, the second Saturday of June), “Sansa Dance Parade” (every year, Aug. 1st to 4th ), “Hachiman Shrine Festival” (also known as “Morioka Autumn Festival” every year, Sep. 14th to 16th )



What is our fee?
