ADVENTURE AWAITS IN TOHOKU

Tsuruoka City is located in the western part of Yamagata Prefecture alongside the Sea of Japan. In 2014, it became  designated as the only UNESCO ‘Creative City of Gastronomy’ in Japan. Three "Japan Heritages” are featured here: Dewa Sanzan's Journey of Rebirth, the Samurai Silk, and the Kitamae-bune Maritime Road.

Other unique attractions that make Tohoku a valuable destination include 1400 year old sacred mountains: Mt. Haguro, Mt. Gassan, and Mt. Haguro; beautiful forests; the Kamo Aquarium, which boasts the biggest jellyfish display in the world; and a unique culinary culture.
