AkitaKakunodate Samurai District -Winter Season-
Kakunodate is a quiet town in the eastern region of Akita, with a traditional samurai-era vibe, it has been dubbed as Little Kyoto of Michinoku. Many samurai houses remain, making it one of the best places to see real examples of a Japanese castle town.
*In winter, the striking contrast of the think white snow and black-colored samurai houses is especially impressive. Contact us for shooting here.
