(3.1/5 based on 1,200+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: museums, sightseeing, parks
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.

Where to stay

The main accommodations in the city of Akita lie close to Senshu Park, a central district that includes the primary train station and many of the main urban attractions and amenities. Choose from hotels and modern guesthouses, or a few options for budget-conscious travelers. More economical choices lie in the residential districts to the west, while many international visitors to the prefecture opt to stay in the rural areas to the east, particularly in the towns that surround the hot springs.
