Thank you for paying your attention on Miwi's tours.
I am a tour guide with national licence of guide interpreter, especially good in Akita. Akita is a prefecture locating south next to Aomori the north tip prefecture of Honshu the main land of Japan, and is facing to the Sea of Japan.
The word Akita may reminds you of DOGS or the MIRACLE STATUE of St. Mary, but there is much more here. The Shirakami Mt. range, the world natural heritage, unique folklores like NAMAHAGE the God's messengers, classical bear hunters MATAGI, beautiful view of the Sea of Japan at the sunset, rice field of world famous label Akita-komachi, sake the rice wine, festivals, various fruits, and so on that I would never end writing up here. Oops! I almost forgot to mention the Samurai Houses district Kakunodate and the Japan Deepest Lake Tazawako!
I was not brought up in Akita nor Tohoku the northern area of Honshu mainland of Japan, but have lived here over 12 years. I was brought up in Tokyo and moved to here unexpectedly (because of my husband's job). I totally had no idea about Akita nor Tohoku then. I am proud that I have the view of an etranger and I can show you what you would be interested in. Tohoku has everything you would wish to Japanese local and classical lives.
Please visit Akita and Tohoku area. This area is not well known to the outer world than its residents yet.
You explore Akita and be the pioneer of this region with Miwi.
