About Yamagata prefecture

Yamagata Prefecture is located in the southwestern part of the Tohoku region, facing the Sea of Japan. The western part of the prefecture is called the Shonai Plain, and agricultural land centered on rice cultivation is spreading. Most of the eastern part of the prefecture is mountainous, and the symbol mark of the prefecture is a stylized appearance of three mountains lined up.

During the Warring States period, prominent Sengoku warlords such as Mogami, Date, and Uesugi fought for supremacy in this area. Even now, each region still has its own unique culture.

In addition, there are many historical temples and shrines, historic sites and remains of the Warring States period. Festivals that inherit the traditions of each region are also held, and many tourists gather at the Yamagata Hanagasa Festival (held in early August) and the Yonezawa Uesugi Festival (held from late April to early May).
