Kakunodate ( Kakunodate-machi) was a town located in Senboku District, Akita Prefecture, Japan.
The town was famed for its well-preserved samurai houses and the proliferation of cherry trees. It was a popular destination for hanami, or cherry blossom viewing. It was sometimes referred as ‘the little Kyoto of Tohoku’ (Michinoku no sho-Kyōto).
I visited Kakunodate in early summer, verdant town, Kakunodate, was very veautiful.

満開の枝垂桜がたんわりとしなだれ,道一面が花びらで赤く染まる春の角館は,JR東日本のポスターでも採用されている秀逸の美しさです。しかしその反面,観光客でごった返すのも事実。
そこで私は,初夏の時期に訪れてみました(再訪)。
みちのくの京都とも呼ばれているらしい角館,その名に恥じない,武家屋敷のまちなみの落ち着き,新緑からのこぼれ陽,なかなか美しかったです。
