Iwate Prefecture is the largest prefecture after Hokkaido, and it offers a wealth of sightseeing spots, including inspiring, magnificent coastlines, four beautiful seasons, majestic mountains, and relaxing hot springs. Iwate also offers cultural and living facilities to support residents, roads, parks, water and sewage systems, and provides a relaxed and comfortable environment where work places and private life can coexist in a community. In addition, Iwate prefecture offers the most prefecture-run hospitals in Japan and maintains a full range of healthcare and welfare services for the needs of local communities.
