Iwate Prefecture is located in the northeastern part of the Tohoku region, is the second largest after Hokkaido, and is the largest prefecture in Japan comparable to the Shikoku region.

Overcoming the lack of flatlands and unfavorable weather conditions, it is now one of the leading agricultural prefectures in the country, and its forestry and leaf tobacco production is thriving.
