It is the second largest nationwide in terms of total area, but the ratio of habitable area is 2%, which is low, and it is 24.3th nationwide.List of prefecture areas #2014See). There are two major habitable areas: inland (population about 100 million) and coast (about 30). Of these, in the inland areaTohoku Shinkansen-Tohoku Transit ExpresswayHigh-speed transportation infrastructure such as is in place, but infrastructure is not developed in other areas, so movement between areas is notNational road,Conventional lineStay at the level. In particular, in order to travel between inland and coastal areas,General national road-Prefectural roadIs a road going up and down a steep mountain pass, which results in a long travel time for a straight distance.

In the south area of ​​the prefecture, there were many wide-area living areas that were set up in the past, but they have been integrated into one and are now under the jurisdiction of the newly-established "prefectural south area promotion bureau." As a result, the number of wide-area living areas, which used to be 2, was reduced to 12.

Prefecture area classification

The Wide Area Promotion Bureau is divided into the following four categories.

The sphere is divided into the following 9 areas.

  • Morioka area (Iwate area, Morioka area, Shiwa area)
  • Central Iwate area (Waga area, Hanamaki area, Tono area)
  • Biling River area
  • Ryoban area
  • Miyako area
  • Kamaishi area
  • Kesen area
  • Ninohe area
  • Kuji area


The prefectures are listed for each promotion bureau. There are 14 cities, 10 districts, 15 towns and 4 villages in the prefecture. As for the reading of "town," six of Katsuraki town, Iwate town, Nishiwaga town, Yamada town, Karumai town, and Ichinohe town are "machi," and all others are "cho." All villages are read as "mura".

Latte column TV is mainly published by Asahi, Mainichi and Yomiuri stations (located in Morioka). Other than that, many newspapers combine Aomori, Akita, and Iwate's “Northeast North” prefectures into one edition. However, in Aomori and Akita, there are four commercial broadcasting stations in Iwate and four commercial broadcasting stations in Iwate, so due to space limitations, Iwate broadcasting stations are not lined up in a row, some stations can be lowered to the bottom, or so-called "half size". There are also newspapers posted at. Many radios have newspapers that publish AM/FM of Tohoku prefecture, but it is difficult to listen to them.FukushimaBroadcasting stations may be omitted.

The dialect study of Iwate Prefecture is said to have come to the fore in the "Mikuni Tsuki" written by Takeshi Hattori, a samurai feudal clan, in 1790 (2nd year of Kansei). In "Mikuni Tsuki", the vocabulary used in everyday life is 567 words, and the Edo word "Kohoru" is used.Morioka dialectIt takes the form of a series of items corresponding to the "similar". Before and after Takeshi Hattori, Moritaka Kurokawa's "Tani Shimizu (1799)" and Omotomura Tsukasa "Moryo Dialect (1877)" are all vocabulary books.

In 1903 (Meiji 36), the dialect survey by the National Language Survey Committee was conducted, and as a result, schools and individuals in each region actively conducted surveys and research. It is said that it can be roughly divided into 2 areas into 4 areas, and when divided into 4 areas, the northern dialect area in the band form adjacent to Akita and Aomori prefectures from Hirono town to Nishiwaga town, the coastal dialect from Kuji city coast to Ofunato city north Central dialect region from central Morioka to central Tono city and northern Kitakami city, next to southern dialect region from Kanegasaki town to Kamaishi city[35].
