Iwate is the second largest prefecture following Hokkaido, but just as full of wonderful nature. With its geographical variety, weather conditions can differ widely from one area to the next. A popular Japanese writer, Miyazawa Kenji (1896-1933), lived in Iwate. And the poet Basho had traveled through Iwate and written about it. Skiiers and nature lovers should be pleased with Iwate.
