The coastal city of Akita has gained a wider reputation for its Kanto Matsuri, or "pole lantern festival," where skilled performers balance long bamboo poles on their foreheads with glowing paper lanterns attached to the end. The lanterns have become a symbol of this city, which prides itself on its folk heritage. Beyond this event, the main attraction of Akita remains its scenery, with a great diversity of lakes, coastal areas lit by colorful sunsets, and temple-covered mountains. With the Inspirock online itinerary creator, Akita and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
