Mito

Mito is the capital of Ibaraki Prefecture.

A few minutes walk from Mito Station is a tobacconist with a very special employee: a cat named Hachi (ハチ) after the black marks on its forehead which look like the Kanji character for the number eight. Hachi attracts visitors from all over Japan because the number eight is considered lucky.

The old town is home to Kōdōkan is a restored 19th-century school and the ruins of the 12th-century Mito Castle.
