Shirakami, Oga Areas

Speaking of Oga Area, the first thing that comes to mind is the "Namahage festival". This unique custom can be seen throughout the city, there are special facilities where costumes and masks are actually used as an exhibit.
Here you can experience the culture, history, and nature, such as scenic park "Kaze no Matsubara", which has been selected as one of the 100 best Japanese pine trees and 100 soundscapes of Japan, and Noshiro Park where you can enjoy the spectacular views of the four seasons. It is one of the best sightseeing spots in Akita we strongly recommend visiting.
