Mito

— 2 nights
Quaint and historic, Mito serves as the capital of Ibaraki Prefecture, once a castle town and stronghold for the Edo-period Mito clan.
Get out of town with these interesting Mito side-trips: Oarai-machi (Oarai Isosaki Shrine & Aqua World Ibaraki Prefectural Oarai Aquarium), Kashima (Kashima Jingu & Oka Park) and Ushiku Daibutsu (in Ushiku). There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Kairakuen Park, take in the dramatic scenery at Fukuroda Falls, browse the eclectic array of goods at Nakaminato Fish Market, and get to know the fascinating history of Semba Boadwalk.
