Fodor's Expert Review Akita Kawabata Isariya Sakaba

$$$ Akita Japanese Fodor's Choice
This restaurant lives up to its promise of "All of Akita in one building." Delicious, unique regional dishes such as the highly recommended pickle selection topped with a tiny paper scarecrow, are served on antique plates by friendly staff. But the highlight of the evening is the arrival of a namahage, a monster from Akita's mountains—despite his fearsome appearance, he will happily pose for photographs. On Saturday there is also a live performance of local folk songs. Look for the namahage statue outside the entrance.
