    秋田犬3匹いましたが、最初は静かで寝ている犬もいて残念でしたが店の人が帰る際にサヨナラの合図をしたら皆元気にシッポ振って、可愛く吠えてました。それからは店の人がいなくなってもおきてました! 施設としては、それまで車で来て田沢湖観光をする前にトイレに行ったり準備するのに便利です。駐車場も広いです。

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.
