The Tohoku Region is located in the northeast part of Honshu, the main island of Japan. It comprises the six prefectures Aomori Prefecture, Iwate Prefecture, Miyagi Prefecture, Akita Prefecture, Yamagata Prefecture, and Fukushima Prefecture, which collectively account for about 30% of Honshu's surface area. The magnificent natural scenery of the Tohoku Region includes Shirakami-Sanchi, a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site located on the boundary between Aomori Prefecture and Akita Prefecture.
