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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Nakajimadai Shishigahana Marsh and Katsuhira Tokushi Memorial. Change things up with these side-trips from Akita: Hachimantai (Hachimantai Asupite line, Onsen Resorts, &more), Oga (Hachibodai, Shinzan Shrine, &more) and Mt. Iwate (in Shizukuishi-cho). The adventure continues: take in nature's colorful creations at Senshu Park, step into the grandiose world of The Ruins of Akita Castle, examine the collection at Mining Museum of Akita University, and get engrossed in the history at The Satake Historical Material Museum.

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. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
