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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Samurai District and Namahage Museum. Get some historical perspective at Aoyagi Samurai Manor Museum and Ishiguro Samurai House. Venture out of the city with trips to Koiwai Farm (in Shizukuishi-cho), Oga (Mt. Kampu & Ogashinzan Traditional Museum) and Semboku (Lake Tazawa & Kakunodate). And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Senshu Park, examine the collection at Akita Akarenga Kyodokan, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Omoriyama Zoo.

If you are flying in from Philippines, the closest major aiports are Sendai Airport, Niigata Airport and Hakodate Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 15°C, and evening lows to 6°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
