Rokugo no Kamakura (Reference URL:

When Misato is covered in pure white snow, it brings to mind the town’s winter festival, Rokugo no Kamakura, held February 11 – 15. The majestic and soul-stirring festival builds to a crescendo on the night of February 15, with the “Tenpitsuyaku” and “Takeuchi” events. If you happen to be in Akita, please don’t miss this wonderful experience.

*The photo shows “Tenpitsuyaki”, a tradition where papers with wishes written on them are burned so that they can rise up and be delivered to the gods.
