esashi fujiwara no sato

えさし藤原の郷 (Esashi Fujiwara no Sato)

The Esashi Fujiwara no Sato in Oshu, Iwate is a huge historic park featuring the architecture from the Oshu Fujiwara Clan reign. The clan created Hiraizumi’s golden culture and here, several historical structures can be found like Kiyohira’s Residence, Shindenzukuri Garan-style palaces and gardens, Chuson Temple’s Konjikido, and literally the whole town during that time. You can have your pictures taken wearing Heian-style clothes or learn how to paint on clam shells.
