Three rivers flow through Morioka (盛岡), an attractive park commands attention near the centre, and Iwate-san stands proudly in the background, but the prefectural capital is fairly unremarkable for visitors, aside from its convenience as a transport hub and its range of smart noodle restaurants. Morioka is also known for its cast-iron artisan work.
