Oga General Tourist Information Center (男鹿総合観光案内所)

4.0

Tourism Information Office

One cannot miss this tourism spot at the entrance to the Oga Pennisula where two 15-meter high giant statues of Namahage, local ogres, are guarding its entrance. In addition to personalized tourism information from the staff, pamphlets of each area of the site are also available. A computer is also set up at the computer corner for instant information retrieval about the Oga area, while a video presentation of local events and tourist sites is also continuously playing on a screen to inform the visitors about the area. There are local specialty items for sale, and one can stop and enjoy a light meal at the cafe, or visit the outdoor stage and flower garden.

This is a fun little stop to pose with the Ogres of Oga. For the sake of your photo, the morning is best as in the afternoon, you have to photograph into the sun which is not ideal.

          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.
