Akita prefecture

Akita prefecture is my hometown.
It's located in the Tohoku district in Japan.

It's not as popular the city as a Tokyo or Osaka.
But There are beautiful landscape and good old customs in Akita.
That's neighborly relations which were forgotten in the big city.

If you visit Japan, I want you to consider going to Akita.
Winter of Akita is much cold with deep snow, but Summer is cool climate.

Moreover, although there is a legend of "namahage" in Akita, I'll introduce it with another entry.
