Usually, summer in Morioka is filled with sounds of drums and flutes humming throughout the town.
Men and women, old and young are usually hard at work preparing and practicing for the Morioka Sansa Odori festival that is held every year on August 1-4. The air is filled with joy and laughter.

Spanning a length of more than 1,000 kilometers, the Michinoku Coastal Trail in Tohoku, Japan runs along the majestic Pacific Ocean.
The trees of the forest awaken from their slumber. These are scenes from spring to fall, brimming with new life. Plants and trees grow lush with foliage, people join in passionate festivals and fields of grain are ready for harvest. As hikers move throughout the changing seasons, each person continues to weave the tapestry of their life, continuing on their journey on foot while cherishing Tohoku’s scenery and people met along the way.
