MUTSU

Mutsu (Aomori Prefecture) is located near to the northern tip of Honshu, where the Shimokita Peninsula snakes away from the main island, ending in a remote enclave of mountains, forests and rivers. The area feels like the last outpost of the mainland, offering glimpses back to an older Japan of pilgrimages to the mouth of hell, and imps hiding out in brooks and valleys.
