Ibaraki Tourism

Ibaraki prefecture is about 1-2 hours away from Tokyo and the natural surroundings make a great escape from the capital.

Historical Background

During the Medieval Period, powerful samurai generals had their residence in the area and much of lbaraki's rich history can be appreciated in Mito City.

Ibaraki Attractions

In the middle of Ibaraki prefecture rises Mt. Tsukuba, one of the Kanto region's most impressive natural features. To the southeast of the mountain is the brimming Lake Kasumigaura, Japan's second-largest lake.

Ibaraki Festivals

Towns with a castle history and those known as gateways to shrines and temples have passed on the old festival traditions from generation to generation.

Ibaraki's cultural heritage can also be appreciated with a visit to Kairaku-en garden and the Kashima shrine - one of the three best shrines in the eastern area.

Ibaraki Coastline

Visitors to the area can enioy swimming, marine sports, fishing, and camping along a coastline extending from the middle of Ibaraki prefecture, southwards. The northern coastline is famous in its own right as a hot-springs resort.

Kashima City

Kashima City is 80km east of Tokyo, at the southeast end of Ibaraki prefecture, facing the Pacific Ocean.

Home to the Kashima Antlers, the stadium is sometimes likened to a place of worship, although visitors shouldn't overlook the old shinto shrine - Kashima Jingu.
