Ishikawa Takuboku Poetry Monument (in front of Morioka Station)

Morioka City

Central Iwate

In the plaza in front of Morioka Station, there is a monument with a poem engraved with the words, ``Looking toward the mountains of my hometown, I have nothing to say. I am grateful for the mountains of my hometown.'' The song was composed during his time working at the Tokyo Asahi Shimbun newspaper, and its nostalgic feel is familiar to many people. Additionally, the letters ``Morioka'' posted on the outside wall of the station are a collection of letters written in Takuboku's own handwriting.
