Akita, you may know as Japanese dog, is the destination here. Akita is a prefecture, 600km away from the center of Japan. 72 % of the land is covered by forests, full of water, and it gives us rich environment of farming. People living here harvest a high quality of rice, pick up seasonal mountain vegetables, and get fresh seafood. They have enjoyed the natural resources, and lived with it. Visiting Akita in summer, you can enjoy a life of farmers-harvesting summer vegetables, joining a passionate summer festival to pray for good harvest.
