Akita Winter Festival Trip

February 8 @ 23:50 - February 11 @ 19:00
(Register by: January 23)
Max Capacity: 40 (TUJ students only)

Bundle up and step into the remote northern region of Akita to discover the beauty of its nature and folklore. The first day we will travel to the Oga Peninsula to learn more about the Namahage demons before stopping by the Oga Aquarium. At night, we will enjoy the Namahage Sedo Festival, where we will see the Namahage demons dancing around bonfires in the forest. The second day we will admire the nature of Akita from our own private train that will take us to the Samurai village of Kakunodate. In the evening, we will participate in the Kamihinokinai Paper Balloon Festival! We will use the third day to go back to Tokyo.
