Akita, being part of Japan's most prized rice belt, is famous for its production of Sake.
This delicious Sake goes well with the fresh seafood and wild vegetables which are taken from Akita.
We have some famous local cuisines such as "Kiritanpo" made from the newly harvest rice and "Shottsuru Kayaki" made with "Hatahata" fish famous here in Akita.
