Our lunch was selected at the West Palace, a restaurant converted from a family of more than 300 years old.
Today, all the warriors are listed as national key monuments, and the West Palace is one of them.
Originally, the food produced by the store with high value of the face did not expect too much. I randomly ordered the parents and children. I didnt imagine the taste was unexpected. Ota sauce later told me that the original chicken was also Akita's specialties, Akita rice and chicken are well-known ingredients in the country, which is limited by the autumn and winter seasons.
From the spacious yard outside the door, I cant think of a restaurant hidden inside.
The restaurant was built from the original house. The use of large windows and windows makes the interior lighting very good. It is complemented by old-age kerosene lamps and old pianos. European retro style, very elegant.
The restaurant also has an indoor part. Basically, the western style is more intense. There are also hand-made coffee filters that have been preserved for hundreds of years. The tableware used is also a very sophisticated ceramic. It is simple to eat. Just a meal, there is already a full sense of ritual.
[Summer unique experience - "Snow Cave Festival"]
hand snow cave festival, has a tradition of more than 400 years. Very famous in Japan, it is a winter special snow festival in the Northeast.
Although it came to Yokohama in the summer, I experienced the real scene of the winter snow cave in the snow cave room of the Snow Cave Museum in Yokote City Exchange Center.
The water god is worshipped in the snow cave, because the horizontal hand is a basin, and it is hard to rain in summer, so I hope that the water god will bless and the rain will be abundant next year.
This has been kept at minus 17 degrees, and you can feel it here all year round.
Must come to play a card in winter, only held on February 15 and 16 each year.
The specialty shops here can buy delicious pickled radish and delicious red grape juice.
There is also a special dessert shop next to the Yokote City Exchange Center.
Its fun, their desserts are based on bugs and theyre made to life.
The favorite thing to come to Japan is to do the manual experience. This time we chose the cherry skin craft that was only passed down in Akita.
Use the skin of the cherry tree to make your own jewelry box.

is said to be strong and strong, and also has the function of preventing moisture and cold.
Cut out the favorite pattern according to your own idea and put it on the black lacquered jewelry box. Finishing and painting is completed. The pattern I made is a traditional cherry blossom pattern.
was praised by the teacher, and the photo was posted in the store, so happy. Now I have another Utada Sakura leather jewelry box with special commemorative significance.
It is especially recommended that you can eat the "cross-boiled noodles" from the end of the Akita farm in the village of Akita.
Japan has a lot of fried noodles, but the noodles are not the same. The sauce is thicker and sweeter. It has won the championship in the local food competition.
fried noodles are fried on the iron plate. The taste is very delicious, the price is very affordable, and the popularity is very high. Many people will buy the packaged semi-finished products and go home.

The girl is dressed in a large dress above the float, and the inside of the float is hidden in the vocal music. The band, when the ritual ceremony is going on, the girl will dance with the music on the float.
When the teams that are dragging the mountains meet each other, in order to compete for the right of priority, the arrogant performance will make the mountains collide with each other. This process is called mountain collision. The whole scene is rough and magnificent. !
The Tazawa Lake in Akita Prefecture is the deepest lake in Japan, with a water depth of more than 400 meters. The symbol here is a bronze-painted gold-painted statue of Chen Zi, from the legend of Chen Zi Ji. It seems to be a cloudy day, but I think it should be like this. There is also a small driftwood shrine on the lakeside. You can take a boat trip around the lake, or take a bike for two or three hours around the lake.
At the Tazawa Lake, I ate the rice bowl Udon noodles and the gossip pork shabu-shabu in Akita Prefecture. Put the vegetables in the pan, then the pork can be eaten for a few seconds. Udon noodles are soft and smooth, like ~~
The northeastern part of Japan is more populous than the big cities of Tokyo and Osaka. Flowers and trees can grow here. From the past three days, nothing has been added from the eyes. It comes from the most authentic and simple nature of nature. view.
The young people in the countryside can always find a reason to live in a big city, escape from the slow and unchanging life here, but the people in the city seize the short break of the weekend, escape from the hustle and bustle, come here to feel the most natural Mountain color.
The three-day mountain life is so slow that we can have the mood to listen to the raindrops on the shores of Tazawa Lake. Look carefully at which rice fields are ripening, so slow that we mistakenly thought it has passed. A week... The original "Little Forest" depicts not an ideal life, but a real life.
I came to the corner hall in the middle of Akita Prefecture, as if I had passed back to the Edo era. The towns that began construction in 1620 have Nakamachi (Wujia Mansion) and Outer Town (Businessmen Street), and have remained intact for nearly four hundred years. It is also known as "the small Kyoto of the Austrian Olympics". In fact, there are more than 30 small Kyotos in Japan.
Perhaps the visitors are scattered around the five o'clock, and the shops outside are also closed, especially clean. The Wujiaguan Guanqing Liujia is also the historical village of Jiaoguan. There are main houses, arsenals, local pavilions and appliance halls in the courtyard. All the buildings and exhibits are used by the Qingliu family. The main entrance (Pharmacist Gate) was built in 1860, and the thatched roofed house was still the actual residence of the Qingliu family until 1985.
