Akita is born by water.

Yajirobay tour #5 @Nikaho (にかほ)

Why is Akita famous for rice and sake?

One of the reasons is water. Akita has more than 350 rivers spreading over 3,200 km. It is almost the same distance of the entire Japanese island! In winter, there is a lot of snow and the mountains filter it at very slow speed to produce clean water. Local people in Akita have lived with this, and enjoyed tasty rice, sake, and more unique products!
