Akita - Japan Highlights:
Kubota Castle, Kakunodate samurai district
Akita is the capital of Akita Province, Japan on the northwestern side of Honshu Island. The area of present-day Akita was part of ancient Dewa Province, and has been inhabited for thousands of years. The Jiz?den ruins within the city limits are a major archaeological site with artifacts from the Japanese Paleolithic period through the Jomon and Yayoi periods.

During the Nara period, the Yamato court established Akita Castle in 733 AD to bring the local Emishi tribes under its control. The area was ruled by a succession of local samurai clans in the Sengoku period, before coming under the control of the Satake clan of Kubota Domain during the Edo period. Under the Tokugawa shogunate, a castle town developed around Kubota Castle. A Folk Art museum is housed in a former 20th century bank building with a lovely baroque interior that showcases the works of two renowned local artisans.

Sights in the surrounding province include Lake Tazawa, the deepest lake in Japan at almost 1,400 ft and Kakunodate impeccably preserved samurai district that once housed about 80 families and showcases samurai architecture and lifestyle. You can also visit Shirakami-Sanchi, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to the largest virgin beech tree forest in East Asia and Mt. Kanpuzan Observatory.
