Introduction to Morioka City

Morioka City is a core city in the Tohoku Region with a population of about 300,000. While preserving the stately and romantic atmosphere of a castle town, the city has been under development as a center of exchange for the Northern Tohoku region. The city provides the students with a comfortable living environment. Morioka City is also famous for two great literary figures, namely Takuboku Ishikawa and Kenji Miyazawa.
