Kurort walking with an Akita dog!

This is the perfect year-round activity for those of you want to meet an Akita and explore the charming countryside Japan at the same time! Join your furry companion, Masa, on a rejuvenating walk through the Japanese countryside that lies amid rural Akita’s picturesque landscapes. It’s not just your everyday walk―this experience will take you on a course filled with fun and engaging activities such as amusing arts, drawings and signs and stops like ‘Yamabiko’ (echo) and ‘Wahahaha’ points that will keep you entertained along the way! Don’t forget to take plenty of photos with Masa and the friendly local guide as well.

Note: For those of you are interested in trying the walking course only (without Masa), please check this activity here.
