KOSAKA
  • LOCAL DELICACIES
  • MUSEUMS / GALLERIES
  • WILDLIFE / NATURE

On the surface, Kosaka (Akita Prefecture) may seem like a sleepy, old mining town, but there are a variety of attractions for visitors to the area. The town has diligently preserved its Meiji-era elegance.
The centre is defined by the Meiji 100-Year Road - a pretty, tree-lined thoroughfare which includes the Mine Museum, Tenshikan (a pioneering school in the town) and the elegant Korakukan theatre. For a quieter, out of town experience, the vast Lake Towada (20 kilometres away) is a gorgeous, tranquil spot for enjoying nature through the seasons.
One of the 100 hidden towns in Japan chosen for this publication.
