Kanadajin3 Goes to AKITA
This is me and the REAL Hachiko. You know Hachiko dog is Akitaken, which is Japanese dog native to Akita. Akita is a prefecture in northern Japan.
Akita doesn't have large population
The kanji mean 秋田 FALL, Rice field
I love Akita. It was amazing. But one thing I learned....You Really need a car to get around.
This is not a temple btw. It is someones HOUSE!
It is because Kakunodate is actually a old samurai city. Along the walk through the Shidarezakura (weeping sakura), you walked through a samurai village.
I honestly recommend you check out the Shidarezakura in Kakunodate because it was really good.
Thats not all Akita has to offer. In May in the mountains it is still snowing. I went on a bus to Tamagawa onsen, Japans most acidic onsen. Sadly, the video failed because
1. There are two tamagawa onsen bus stops, I thought there were 15 min walk apart...but because it was snowing the path was covered and its actually 1 hour walk away so we had no time to enter the REAL tamagawa onsen, we only went to the new tamagawa onsen. I will be back though....someday...
The lake you see above was the most beautiful lake view I have ever seen in all of Japan. It was so blue. The picture doesn't even capture the beauty. It is not a famous lake either, it was literally a random lake on the bus ride towards Tamagawa onsen.
