Towada is a famous destination in Tohoku. Lake Towada is a national park and a wild life sanctuary. Its natural scenery is carefully protected and its ancient appearance is preserved as it is.

Towada City is one of Japan’s three biggest reclaimed land projects.

From a desolated plateau, communities carved out rivers, made fields, and the town was established. Towada was transformed into an agricultural area, well-known for raising livestock, and its produce is bought throughout the country.

These days, Towada is committed to building a beautiful city in harmony with nature, as a ‘city of art’, that started with the Towada Contemporary Art Museum.
