Iwate Prefecture is the largest prefecture on Honshu, and the second largest in all of Japan, after Hokkaido. It also has the second lowest population density, again after Hokkaido. Iwate Prefecture's total population is just above 1,330,000, with 330,700 in the capital city of Morioka. The famous Buddhist Temples in Hiraizumi, Chuson-ji and Motsu-ji, attract many tourists each year, as well as Morioka Castle, located in Morioka City. Unfortunately, Iwate Prefecture has been victim to many natural disasters over the years, including earthquakes, tsunamis and floods.
