Oame-hompo Kikyoya (翁飴本舗・桔梗屋)
Founded in 1592 as a shop that produced manju steamed buns this famous confectioner makes the Oame sweet, a traditional classic treat that is synonymous with Noshiro. The Oame treat is made with mochi rice and barley and they are still stubbornly making it using the same techniques as when it was created in 1812. When the area was still a fiefdom the Lord Satake would place an order for them every year and they have won eight prizes at the National Sweets Exhibition which is held every four years.

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.
