    おうどん好きにはたまらない、佐藤養助さんのおうどん。 初めて来た時は冷たいおうどん、今回は期間限定の比内地鶏のスープの小鍋仕立てのつけ麺。 いずれも気が利いていてとても良かったです。帰りは必ずおうどんを買って帰ります。ここにはレストランで使われているおうどんが市場の半額で売られています。 工場見学もいいですよ〜

Akita Areas

around-area-map

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.
