Mt. Kanpu寒風山


This gentle 355 meter tall composite volcano is famed for its scenery. It has a number of sights, like Oni no Kakuresato, a rock hill said to be home to Namahage; a spring water area known for its purity, and waterfall headwaters. The peak has an observation facility and the fourth floor rotating observatory offers a panoramic view taking in the Oga Peninsula’s beaches, Mt. Chokai, the Shirakami-Sanchi, and Ogata village. The mountain is girded with Chinese silver grass from the middle section to the peak, and in in Autumn the grass glitters silver-white in the sun for a mystical spectacle.

          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.
