2 Best Restaurants in Akita, Tohoku

Akita Kawabata Isariya Sakaba

$$$ 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. Look for the statue of the namahage (a fearsome monster from Akita's mountains) outside the entrance.

Noodles can only be called Inaniwa Udon if they are produced in Inaniwa. Established in 1860, this noodle empire has many branches across the Tohoku region, but this one is for connoisseurs who want to sample regional foods and locally brewed sake. Make big slurps and enjoy.
