Tohoku Tours

Tohoku has three great summer festivals called Nebuta Matsuri in Aomori, Akita Kanto in Akita, and Sendai Tanabata Matsuri in Sendai. Aside from festivals the Tohoku region has a long history involving many different samurai clans like the Date or Aizu.

The region in the northeast part of Japan is called the Tohoku region. The land is vast and is made up of six prefectures. Tohoku is known for their mountainous areas, great summer festivals, and their coastal lines.

Tohoku has a long history involving samurai. Aomori is famous for its Nebuta Matsuri, a giant lantern parade in August. Lake Towada is a caldera that is beautiful when the autumn leaves cover the area. Hirosaki is a culturally rich area with 7000 cherry blossom trees around its castle. Akita has the Kanto Matsuri, where long bamboo poles with dozens of paper lanterns are balanced by individuals. Kakunodate is has a samurai district with beautiful cherry blossom trees draped down the street. Hiraizumi is a place that once rivaled Kyoto is culture and splendor. Sendai was founded by the famed One Eyed Dragon, Date Masamune and is one of the largest cities in Japan. Matsushima Bay is one of “Japan’s Three Most Scenic Views.” Yamagata has three sacred mountains with shrines and is the place with the most self-mummified monks. Urabandai is littered with ponds and is a popular outdoor destination. Aizu Wakamatsu was the home of the powerful Aizu Clan.
