On the 5th of August I went to Lake Tazawa in eastern Akita Prefecture. I wrote about the trip several weeks ago. Here are the pictures.

On the 31st of July I visited a few places in Iwate Prefecture. Here are the pictures.
This is the campsite we stayed at. It had very good facilities, perhaps too good. It was supposed to be a seaside campground but I couldn't see any sea at all.
Then we drove to an area where we would be able to ride a tourist boat. These are pictures of the area where we waited for the boat.
The purpose of the boat ride was to go out and look at these rocks. Apparently every now and then the sea hits these rocks in such a way that it makes a huge splash.
Before I left Japan I did a little bit of sightseeing. I have already written about those trips but I never got around to posting the pictures. Here are some pictures from Matsushima, where I went on the 30th of July. Here is some information on Matsushima from Wikitravel.
On the tourist boat.
I think this might be an oyster farm, but I'm not sure.
