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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Semboku (Lake Tazawa, Kakunodate Samurai House Museum, &more) and Oga (Ogashinzan Traditional Museum & Namahage Museum). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Akita Museum Of Art, make a trip to Nakakoji Street, buy something for everyone on your list at Akita Station Building Topico, and examine the collection at Akita city Minzoku Geinou Densho-kan.

To see where to stay, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Akita trip itinerary builder website.
