Nishinomiya House (あきた角館西宮家)
The Nishinomiya Family were retainers for the Satake clan that moved to Akita at the beginning of the Edo period. This residence, which was built in the most prosperous period for the land owner from the Meiji to Taisho periods, comprises five storehouses and one main building. The main building exhibits old documents and artefacts. Visitors can enjoy tea and sweets in the charming Japanese sweet café. The garden is also beautiful and you can see its different seasonal faces such as the cherry blossoms in the spring and the colorful kaki fruit in the autumn.

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.
