Ski!? Matsuri!? Local foods in Iwate

Last time I introduced my hometown, IWATE(^-^)

So…. this time, I want to introduce events and local food there!!!

Do you like winter sports??

If you visit Iwate in winter, you should try skiing or snowboarding in APPI Resort!!


There are 21 courses and the longest course is 5,500m!!!!


You can enjoy snow sports between December and beginning of May~!!

In summer, you can see MATSURI (Japanese Festival) anywhere in Japan,

but the most famous Matsuri in Iwate is “Morioka Sansa Odori”!!


if you want to join it, please visit there in summer :)

Last but not least… I would like to introduce the famous FOOD in Iwate!!!

If you are big eater, you should try WANKO-SOBA in Iwate!!


Wanko means “wooden soup bowl” in Japanese, and Soba is black wheat noodles.

If you try Wanko-soba, you have to compete by eating as many bowls as possible!

This is “MORIOKA REIMEN”. It’s not RAMEN…REIMEN is a type of cold noodle soup!


The noodle is very chewy, but you will get addicted immediately just like me~ A must try!!

If you can’t go to Iwate, you can taste it in Ginza, Tokyo~!! (“PyongPyongSha” GINZA GLASSE 11th floor)

Thank you!
