Tono City is located in the inland part of south-eastern Iwate Prefecture. Most of the entire city is located in the uppermost part of the Sarugaishi River, itself a tributary of the Kitakami River. The middle section of the city is called the Tono Basin, the largest basin in the Kitakami mountain range. Also, Mt. Hayachine, the 2nd most tallest mountain in Iwate Prefecture, is partially located inside the city.
Tono is the setting of author Kunio Yanagida’s “Tono Monogatari”, and “Tono Minwa (folk tales of Tono)”, which contain tales about kappa water sprites and zashikiwaraji ghosts, have been passed down through the ages. The Tsukimohshi region, where Tsukushi Farm is located in, is at the foot of Mt. Hayachine, and is known for its rich natural environment.
Activities such as foraging for wild mountain vegetables in the springtime, hand picking blueberries (1300 bushes) in the summertime, chestnut picking in the autumn, and snow activities in winter can be enjoyed...and other varieties of farm activities are available for you.
