AKITA PREFECTURE

Hot springs, lakes, festivals and rice wine - there is much to enjoy in the remote areas of Akita.
Aside from the natural beauty of Akita’s mountains and coastline, visitors can also enjoy the rich historical legacy of its castles, preserved samurai districts, and Meiji-era architecture.
Why not experience the frightening but hilarious namahage festival in Oga, sample the various hot spring onsen of the area, or hike around the unspoilt lake of Towada?
