Shizukuishi Vacation Packages
Tokyo, the capital of Japan, is located roughly 290 miles (467 kilometers) to the south of Shizukuishi.
From perennial tourist favourites to lesser known nooks and crannies, Iwate is crisscrossed with sights and attractions. While in the region, visit the Appi Kogen Ski Resort and Rikuchu Kaigan National Park in and around Morioka, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) to the west of Shizukuishi.
Approximately 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the west of Shizukuishi is Akita, an important regional center and the home of Akita Municipal Gymnasium, Shenshu Park and Akarenga Folklore Museum. Mt. Taihei Resort Park, Selion and Atorian are a number of other places to see for those who have more time on their hands.
Perhaps one of the best compliments you can offer to a region's people is to put in the effort of a little of their language. "Isshoni odorimasenka?" is Japanese for "Would you like to dance with me?" "Benjo wa doko desu ka?" ("Where's the toilet?") is another handy one to keep up your sleeve.
The 23rd of December is the day when many people in Japan celebrate Birthday of Emperor Akihito, so be on the look out festivities and parades if you are vacationing in Iwate then.
At the end of your holiday in Shizukuishi, use your last yen on last-minute souvenirs and say Sayōnara (farewell).
