TW is teaming up with JAPAN RAIL CAFE TOKYO to bring you the best of Tohoku. This month, join Tohoku Ambassador and TW Senior Editor Lisa Wallin and fellow readers for a one-hour session to learn about one of the region’s six prefectures. Each session will include a hands-on experience, and every participant will receive a goodie bag to take home.
Home to Japan’s great noodle trifecta (wanko soba, reimen and jajamen), Iwate is often overlooked by travelers who aren’t interested in food. But the prefecture is rich in culture and unique crafts such as Nambu tekki and lacquerware. More recently, Iwate has also been brewing (pun intended) its own craft beer community. In this session, we invite participants to put together their very own kinbeco, a wooden cow and a traditional toy of Iwate Prefecture. Gifts for this event include gomasuri dango, Nambu sembei, sweets, local beer and other snacks.
To join us, make sure to register here. (Please only sign up for one event.)
