    国道7号線、道の駅西目が目印です。少し奥まったところにひっそりとある施設です。 建物はあまり大きくないですが敷地はかなり広いです。 季節的にいろんなお花は咲き初めでしたが施設の中で体験メニューも充実しておりいろいろ楽しめました。

    Akita Pref. Sembokushi Tazawakotazawa Before the lagoon 78
    This botanical garden is around the area by Lake Tazawa in Semboku City, Akita Prefecture. The herb garden has over 250 kinds of herbs on display, and for a fee, guests can try various crafts, like making their own scent sprays or hand creams with herbs and oils. There is also a restaurant inside the garden with menus geared toward large groups, as well as a lunch buffet. It is popular with families and other tourist groups.

    I'm not sure why this place doesn't rate higher among things to do. Then again, it perhaps should really be listed under 'restaurants', as you would mainly go here to eat. We went for the weekend...

Akita Main Areas


Famed for its sake and samurai, Akita prefecture offers quintessential Japanese culture in a non-touristy setting. Alongside the celebrated rice paddies and historical sites of the region lies dramatic natural scenery in the form of the rugged coastline of the Oga Peninsula and the Dakigaeri Gorge, best visited in autumn, when the leaves begin to change color.
