About The Akita Dog Experience Route

The Akita D0g Experience Route

The area of Akita prefecture in northern Japan has abundant nature, hot springs, and traditional culture, but it is also the home of the Akita breed of dog, which is the representative dog of Japan. The dog known as Hachiko, of which a bronze statue can be found at the famous meeting spot in front of Shibuya Station, was also an Akita and is famous as the main character of the story in which he faithfully returned to Shibuya Station every day for 10 years to wait for his master even after his death.
The town of Kakunodate, famous for its magnificent rows of cherry blossom trees in the spring and in which splendid samurai family residences reminiscent of the townscape of the Edo Period stand in a row, is approximately 3 hours from Tokyo Station on the Akita Shinkansen. The beautiful Lake Tazawa, the deepest lake in all of Japan, can also be found in this area, and the route along the Akita Nairiku Jūkan Railway from Kakunodate to the former Kosaka Station, the hometown of the Akita dog breed, is called the “Akita-ken Fureai Line” (Akita Dog Petting Line). In the past, the Akita breed served as a highly loyal breed of hunting dog. In recent times, these dogs are popular as household pets in Japan due to their docile nature. Why not go on a trip to come in contact with the adorable Akita dogs while experiencing the abundant nature and historic culture of Akita prefecture?
