Where is Iwate?
Iwate prefecture is located 500km north of Tokyo and is the second largest prefecture in Japan. Well-known for a variety of fresh local delicacies, this region is blessed with rich fertile soil well-suited for growing nutritious vegetables, fruits, and their especially famous high-quality short-grain rice. Surrounded by beautiful lands and a bountiful ocean, it is no wonder 1.25 million people have decided to call Iwate home.
The people of Iwate have always appreciated the land. As a show of respect, and an acknowledgement to the gifts that nature provides, Iwate holds sustainability as a core value. This is seen even in the region’s farming practices.
Traditional methods of farming revolving around quality and natural fertilizers are still used today. Small farms simultaneously growing rice, livestock, and other produce have created the sustainable farming cycle that is unique to Iwate.
