Designated an Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings, there are still a number of samurai houses preserved, including the Aoyagi house. The area is also famed for cherry blossoms, with weeping cherry and other different cherry trees than Yoshino lining the streets. The Kakunodate Sakura festival is held every year from April 20 to May 5.

          Akita Main Areas


          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.
