Tour de Nippon in Akita / Tazawako

Tazawako, Akita located in Northern Japan is filled with green trees, blue water and mountain vegetables. Lumber is plenty, the pine trees being used for building and the maple trees to make beautiful baskets. Occasionally, rising from the fresh air one can hear the howl of an Akita Dog.
