These parks are located very near to the city or in the city. Traditional Japanese garden blended with modern features are a theme of few of the above mentioned parks.
It is better to make a trip to Akita during the Kanto festival. In this festival the town bustles with the rhythm of music and wonderful lanterns lights up the night. In the carnival marches the incredible feat of balancing by the acrobats can be witnessed. The wonderful sunset on the beach of the Sea of Japan is enjoyed by the residents and tourist of Akita as it is only a few kilometers from the city centre.
In 2005 two more towns, Kawabe and Yuwa, were included inside the city of Akita which led to further expansion.
