Interesting facts about this location

Lake Tazawa

Lake Tazawa is a caldera lake in Semboku, Akita Prefecture, northern Japan. It is the deepest lake in Japan (the maximum depth is 423.0 m). Because of its depth, it never freezes. Formerly the lake was noted for having very clear water which could be compared to Lake Mashu in Hokkaidō. It was polluted due to the construction of a hydroelectric dam in 1940 and acid drainage from the Tamagawa Hot Spring.

Kakunodate Castle

, also known as Asakura Castle and Ryugasaki Castle, was a mountaintop castle (yamashiro) located in Kakunodate, Akita Prefecture, Japan. Its roots can be traced to when Moriyasu Tozawa was given the area in 1590, though it may have been constructed prior to this. Due to a Shogunal decree that each domain was to retain only one castle, it was demolished in 1620. Only ruins remain at the site on Mount Furushiro.
