Ibaraki-ken Travel Guide: 207 reviews and 829 photos

Ibaraki is a prefecture which is located North-East of Tokyo, somewhere near the Narita International Airport. This prefecture is "off the beaten path" and seldom visited by tourists which tend to go for the more popular nearby places such as Hakone, Mount Fuji, Nikko etc.

I had a chance to visit Ibaraki Prefecture during my work in Tokyo where I went for a short trip to a herbal medicines factory located. Let me share with you my experiences and photos of Ibaraki, including the herbal medicines factory and its beautiful herbal garden :)

This photograph shows the typical landscape of Ibaraki Prefecture, which consists mainly of flat terrain and many farmland, small towns and rivers.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Not touristy and a taste of rural life in Japan, near to Tokyo
  • Cons:Not so accessible by transportation unlike major tourist destinations
  • In a nutshell:Interesting "off the beaten path" prefecture near to Tokyo & Narita

    I'm surprised I've never heard of this Buddha statue before. How interesting!
