Announcing a brand new Instagram and Youtube in English!
Thus far, Iwate Prefecture has used Facebook, its own homepage, and other social media to share information with the world about itself. With the Rugby World Cup 2019™ and other big events coming up in the future, we anticipate even more tourists visiting from around the world. That's why we opened up a new English-language Instagram and Youtube on June 20th.

This Instagram will account will be manned by our Coordinators of International Relations (CIRs), who will use their fresh perspectives (and great pictures) to show off what it's like to live in Iwate - all of the sights and the little charming things that happen everyday.
