Kakunodate Samurai Street角館武家屋敷通り
Even after the Ashina clan enacted largescale city planning in 1620, this samurai district flourished under the Satake clan. There are many weeping and Yoshino cherry trees along the main avenues, and during full bloom the entire town turns the color of the blossoms. The beauty of the cherry trees in this historic town is exceptional. It bustles with visitors who come to view the blossoms every year from April 20 to May 5 during the Kakunodate Cherry Blossom Festival.

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.
