Introduction / はじめに

Hi there! Welcome to Ichinoseki City’s English Guide.

The city’s website has an English version available by free machine translation software , which while convenient given the volume of information, can result in unnatural or incorrect translations.
The Ichinoseki City English Guide website is a quick gateway to get the information you are looking for. For a more comprehensive guide, please check out the Ichinoseki Living Guide 2021

This English guide is a work in progress; take a look around and if you have any questions or feedback about its content, about content on the city’s machine-translated pages, or any other questions, please feel free to send an e-mail to  

Please also check out the excellent English resources on the Iwate Prefecture website, which cover a wide range of topics.
