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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Akita: Semboku (Ishiguro Samurai House, Samurai District, &more) and Oga (Mt. Kampu, Namahage Museum, &more). There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Senshu Park, explore the historical opulence of Kubota Castle, visit Oga Peninsula, and see the interesting displays at Akita Akarenga Kyodokan.

To see more things to do, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Akita trip planner.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 25°C.
