The coastal city of Akita has gained a wider reputation for its Kanto Matsuri, or "pole lantern festival," where skilled performers balance long bamboo poles on their foreheads with glowing paper lanterns attached to the end.
Head to Akita Kensanhin Plaza and Aeon Mall Akitafor plenty of shopping. Let the collections at The Satake Historical Material Museum and Katsuhira Tokushi Memorial capture your imagination. Change things up with these side-trips from Akita: 16 Rakaniwa Rock (in Yuza-machi), Semboku (Iwahashi Samurai House, Kawaradake, &more) and Nakajimadai Shishigahana Marsh (in Nikaho). There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Nanohana Road, admire the natural beauty at Senshu Park, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Shinzan Shrine, and enjoy the sand and surf at Oganishi Beach.

For more things to do, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, use the Akita road trip website.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major aiports are Sendai Airport, Niigata Airport and Hakodate Airport. In April, daily temperatures in Akita can reach 15°C, while at night they dip to 6°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
