Tohoku is a Japanese region located in the North-East of the main island of Honshu. Occupying 30% of its territory, it is composed of 6 prefectures: Fukushima, Aomori, Akita, Iwate, Miyagi and Yamagata ; its biggest cities being Sendai and Aomori.

Strongly relying on agriculture despite being mountainous, the region is sadly famous for being the victim of one of the biggest disasters of Japan History: the earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011 offshore, followed by the nuclear incident of Fukushima nuclear powerplant.
