Highlights

The rice fertile soil of the Kitakami River catchment area has long supported the prosperity of World Heritage town, Hiraizumi. The fresh produce and rice that are born from this soil have played an integral role in the town’s history. Discover the best scenic spots to appreciate this picturesque countryside on a local cycling tour! Riding through the atmospheric morning mist, you will truly feel the history and essence of the town. After working up an appetite, you’ll also enjoy a simple cooking lesson and re-fuel with a bowl of your own handmade ‘Hatto-jiru’ (dumpling soup), a local delicacy. Bicycles can be returned to the rental-cycle return spot in front of the station.
