Traditionally Kakunodate was considered a castle town and Akita’s home of samurai, and though the local iconic Kakunodate castle is no longer standing, there are still remnants of the town’s rich history scattered throughout the area. Separated into two main areas, the merchant district and the samurai district, the town’s samurai corner still boasts some of the most incredible samurai architecture you can discover in Japan. Most of Kakunodate has survived relatively untouched over the past few centuries, and a visit to Kakunodate’s historic hub is a must do for anyone with even a passing interest in Japanese history.
