Morioka Handi-Works Square

See, touch, create, and experience the traditional way of making things!

Morioka Handi-Works Square has three zones. In addition to the ""handmade workshop zone,'' which has 14 workshops for traditional techniques such as Morioka crafts, folk crafts, and food, there is the ""Morioka regional industrial promotion center zone,"" where more than 4,000 types of local products are exhibited and sold, and the ""Nanbu magariya zone,"" which is a unique relocated stable from the horse-producing area of the prefecture.

The handmade workshops are particularly popular, as you can see the traditional techniques of craftsmen up close, and you can also make your own original works with direct assistance from a craftsman. You can also try your hand at making Nanbu-senbei crackers and making cold noodles, which children and adults can both enjoy.

The Nanbu magariya is a unique stable to the horse-producing area built in the late Edo period, and is a treasure. The stable has agricultural tools that remind us of olden times on display, so you can feel like you have travelled back in time.
