Iwate Prefecture

Welcome to Iwate & the ILC!

Thanks for checking out our redesigned website

Hello there! As you can see, we’ve redesigned the Iwate Prefecture ILC Promotion Council’s English site, and have added the THE KITAKAMI TIMES to the site, which is the English-language newsletter about Iwate & Tohoku’s efforts to bring about the International Linear Collider. “Iwate & the ILC” has been designed to be easier to use and update, and to be accessible from PC, cell phone, tablet, and everything in between.


On the new site you’ll find:

・All past and new articles of THE KITAKAMI TIMES, which are now individually available for easy sharing on Facebook, Twitter, & Google+. We’ll continue to bring you articles every month about initiatives to bring about the ILC, as well as fun info about local culture and events.

・Translations of ILC articles found in local newspapers.

・Event information

・Downloads of pamphlets and previous issues of THE KITAKAMI TIMES

・A video tour of the Kitakami ILC site

・Additional information on the ILC project and the Kitakami site

・…and more!

All of us here are aiming to make THE KITAKAMI TIMES and the Iwate & the ILC site a valuable resource for researchers abroad and anyone with an interest in the ILC project. We’d appreciate if you could link to and support this new site, and let us know if you have any comments and suggestions.

Thanks for visiting!
