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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Akita: Semboku (Onsen Resorts, Samurai District, & more), Tenshochi (in Kitakami) and Oga (Ogashinzan Traditional Museum, Namahage Museum, & more). The adventure continues: admire the natural beauty at Senshu Park, admire the landmark architecture of Michi-no-Eki Akita Port, steep yourself in history at Sankyo Soko Storehouse, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Omoriyama Zoo.
