What is Akita?

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.

Getting Around

Akita prefecture has seen an increase in visitors by plane since Japan Airlines created the Tohoku air pass, which offers the most wallet-friendly route into the prefecture via Akita Airport. The Akita Shinkansen shuttles visitors on a direct route between Tokyo and Akitaーan easy option for JR Pass holdersーwhile journeys by bus are recommended purely for the stunning cedar wood-decked Akita Bus Terminal.
