Akita is a prefecture of endless discoveries. Holding the largest number of important intangible folk cultural properties in Japan, Akita's pivotal charm lies in its people and their traditions. Due to the severe conditions and abundant snowfall in winter, the local people are known as tough, attractive and having a particular liking for Japanese sake. Akita's food is famous for its special flavour. Among the prefecture's highlights are the samurai city Kakunodate, the abundance of hot springs in Hachimantai mountain range, the fearsome legend of Lake Tazawa, as well as the unique Kanto Festival held every summer in Akita city.See more
