hkskyline's 2017 in Morioka

Continuing my tour of the Tohoku region, Morioka is a small city where I camped out to explore neighbouring areas. From the train station, it is a comfortable 20 minute walk to the castle ruins. Morioka's golden period was during the 16-17th centuries.

Morioka Castle was built in 1609 but was demolished in 1874 as the samurai age ended. The site became a public park in 1906. However, its stone walls remain intact and this is a great place to see the mountains that give this pleasant town a lovely backdrop.

Back on street level, I headed towards the Nakatsu-gawa River, where historical buildings are clustered. This area was home to the town's wealthy merchants.

Cool Photos!

I also did something on YouTube for this city, but I"m not sure how to add the photos on here.
