ESCAPE TO NATURE

Akita Prefecture is situated in the north-eastern part of the Japanese main land, east of the Sea of Japan, flowing rivers, and expanses of fertile farmland. Majestic mountain ranges, including the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Shirakami - Sanchi Mountains, surround the northern, southern, and eastern sides and make for incredible views.

The city has a medieval past, but today it offers up a young, energetic spirit with its year-round festivals and street parades. There is also a prosperous art community, including several fine art museums and the Kakunodate Samurai District, showcasing the samurai way of life.

Shrines, temples, and stunning waterfalls are all close to the city and provide a wonderful escape. Akita will have you feeling at one with nature and is the perfect place to decompress.
