Akita JET travel guide
This is a place where you can get some inside tips from fellow Akitans on where to go, how to get there, and what to do once you arrive. No doubt there are more thorough guides about Japan out there, but all of the info here has been tested personally by a fellow Akita JET. That's how you know it's good.
Once you come back from a trip to a different prefecture, help others out by leaving the best bits of info you got. Cheapest or most efficient travel methods, restaurant recommendations, festival advice, accommodation/onsen recommendations, and other general info.
Choose the area of Japan you want to visit from the list below and then click on the appropriate prefecture.
