What to Expect
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.
