Ibaraki Festivals:
Towns with a castle history and those known as gateways to shrines and temples have passed on the old festival traditions from generation to generation.

Ibaraki's cultural heritage can also be appreciated with a visit to Kairaku-en garden and the Kashima shrine -- one of the three best shrines in the eastern area.

Ibaraki Coastline:
Visitors to the area can enioy swimming, marine sports, fishing, and camping along a coastline extending from the middle of Ibaraki prefecture, southwards. The northern coastline is famous in its own right as a hot-springs resort.
