Tohoku Photo Diary

After finishing my study this semester in Tokyo, I extended my stay to travel around before going back. And it's not that Tokyo was not cold enough for me by that time, I decided to travel up to Tohoku region,  northern part of Honshu island of Japan. This is not the part of the country that I have heard as a famous tourist destination. But after doing a little reading about the area and what it has to offer for the winter season, it actually seemed like an interesting place to visit. The region is made of six prefectures; Aomori, Akita, Fukushima, Iwate, Miyagi and Yamagata. However I only got to visit only two, which were Miyagi and Yamagata.

Living in Tokyo, I find Tohoku a little bit inconvenient to travel around, given their limited transportation, its time table to be precise. The area was a little hard to access, including the tourist attractions. Not all of the places were accessible with just public transportation (e.g: trains and buses). A lot of times I had to take a taxi because it's the only way to reach the place, or because it was already too late (it was 5 PM, for God's sake) that the buses were no longer operating. But the inconvenience was nothing compared to the places I got to visitpictures below. A hundred percent will go back here again  as I still have list of places I'd visit for the winter holiday.
