The most popular course in Akita prefecture spending about 7 hours from Akita City. Visiting Tazawako Lake, the deepest and wonderful color lake with folklores, and Kakunodate where you'll see Samurai and Merchants Houses of Edo Shogunate Era since 1600's. Kakunodate has another name to be called Little-Kyoto. Let's go these 2 areas for your very first Akita trip!

You must be astonished to see the color of Tazawako Lake which is the deepest in Japan. Listen to the folklore about the lake, and feel the history of Satake, the Lord of Akita at a shrine. Moving to Kakunodate district, you might be able to have guidance directly from a descendant of a samurai(no promise, possibility only). A little walk in Kakunodate so called Little Kyoto will let you trip into Edo Shogunate Era in Northern Japan.
