Obukazawa Observatory (大深沢展望台)
On the border between Akita and Iwate prefectures, this observatory spot sits at an elevation of 1,560 meters. The smooth ridgeline of the mountains is quite beautiful, and—coupled with the distant views of Mt. Akitakomagatake, Mt. Chokai, and Mt. Gassan—makes this location a truly scenic spot.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
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.
