Ibaraki Prefecture was previously known as Hitachi Province
Ibaraki Prefecture is the northeastern part of the Kanto region, stretching between Tochigi Prefecture and the Pacific Ocean and bounded on the north and south by Fukushima Prefecture and Chiba Prefecture. The northernmost part of the prefecture is mountainous, but most of the prefecture is a flat plain with many lakes.

Ibaraki's industries include energy, particularly nuclear energy, production, as well as chemical and precision machining industries.
Ibaraki's population is increasing modestly as the Greater Tokyo region spreads out.
Famous foods of Ibaraki include natto.
The prefecture is often called "Ibaragi"; however, the official name is "Ibaraki." It is also sometimes jokingly referred as "Chibaragi" combining Chiba and Ibaraki together.
