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.
Get some cultural insight at Samurai District and Ishiguro Samurai House. Let the collections at Aoyagi Samurai Manor Museum and Akita city Minzoku Geinou Densho-kan capture your imagination. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Akita: Oga (Ogashinzan Traditional Museum & Namahage Museum), Yokote Masuda Manga Museum (in Yokote) and Sankyo Soko Storehouse (in Sakata). There's much more to do: admire the masterpieces at Akita Museum Of Art, soak in some Japanese tradition at some of the top local onsens, examine the collection at Mining Museum of Akita University, and take an in-depth tour of Katsuhira Tokushi Memorial.
