    Akita Pref. Sembokushi Kakunodatemachiomotemachikamichou 4-4
    The Hirafuku Memorial Museum of Art is an art museum in Omotemachi Kamicho, Kakunodate Town, Semboku City. The name of the building is derived from the Japanese painters Suian Hirafuku and Hyakusui Hirafuku, parent and child from Kakunodate. The building was designed by Hiroshi Oe, known for his architectural designs of the National Noh theater and Hosei University. Opened in 1988, it was built on the land where the North Satake family (Satake-hokke) of the Satake clan resided and where the old Kakunodate Junior High School building stood. There are pieces of work on display from Naotake Odano and other local artists and followers of Hirafuku, as well as other active young artists.

    At the north end of the samurai houses sit this nice park area with building sitting to the rear, I did not know it was open for viewing the artist exhibited, but the grounds are great.

    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.

    Im not sure why this place doesnt 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 Senboku-shi Tazawako Obonai Komagatake 2-1

    全国各所の休暇村の中では新しい方だと思います。 エレベーターで3階へ上がって歩いた先のお風呂はやや狭目。 お湯の色や臭いは日によって変わるものですが、知らない方がたまに「白濁湯ではない」と言ってるのが残念です。 食事は普通ですが、予約が取りやすいのは休暇村の特徴かも。 湯めぐりでも利用価値はあると思いますが、蟹場温泉や鶴乃湯のようなインパクトを求めるのはお門違いでしょう。

    「幻の金銀細工」の文字に惹かれ軽い気持ちで入場。秋田発祥というこの金属工芸品「金銀銅杢目金(きんぎんどうもくめがね)」は他では見たことが無く、その美しさは圧巻でした。ここでしか見ることが出来ないとのことで入館して正解でした。他にも同じ作家が制作したとはとても思えない現代工芸(ステンレスアート)の作品や、秋田藩佐竹家に縁のある由緒ある武具や書画工芸品等、そんなに大きな施設ではありませんが大変良い時間...

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.
