Shirakami Foliage Walk and Nabekko Picnic(Akita Shirakami Guide Association)

See beautiful foliage in Shirakami-Sanchi! For lunch, make and eat Akita’s traditional food, “kiritanpo hot pot,” with everyone!

Spend a day going around viewing the beautiful foliage in Shirakami-Sanchi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We will meet at the World Heritage Conservation Center, Fujisatokan. We will then head to Shirakami-Sanchi by bus and walk around places famous for their foliage. You’ll get to see Shirakami’s iconic 400-year-old beech tree known as the Mother Tree and the Mononoke Beech, named after the beech forest in Princess Mononoke, a Studio Ghibli film. This is an easy walk on flat land that does not require physical exertion. You will be accompanied by a guide who knows everything about Shirakami. For lunch, you will experience “Nabekko picnic,” a custom unique to Akita involving making a hot pot as a team outdoors, at the Kurumidai Camping Ground. Enjoy making and eating kiritanpo hot pot (kiritanpo is food made of cooked uruchimai rice that is pounded, placed around cedar skewers, and toasted) with everyone. *From late September through October
