Morioka, Japan.

Yesterday while watching NHK, I had the chance to watch a documentary program about Morioka City in Japan.  Morioka is the capital city of Iwate perfecture in Japan. It’s located on the north-east side of  HonshuMorioka has an estimated population of 300,740. The total area is 489.15 km2.  Three rivers flow over Morioka, the Kitakami, the Shizukuishi and the Nakatsu. Although Morioka is a small city but it has 5 stars hotels and restaurants, besides the museums and shops.

Morioka can be reached in a 3 hours ride on the Shinkansen (bullet train) from Tokyo. Sakura trees usually bloom in Morioka by late April, so I guess it’s the best time to visit Morioka. It has been already added to my to do list hehehe!  Inshallah I’m planning to visit Nagoya in late March, Sendai and Morioka in late April and Hokkiado in May to chase the flow of Sakura!
