Japan’s secret ski resorts hide in the hills above Akita. On day three, we pointed our bikes upwards and climbed these spectacular slopes. This is the last of a three-part series on my cycling trip to Akita, Japan.
In Part I of my Akita journey, I discovered the brilliant red and gold colours of this autumnal prefecture. On my second day of cycling in Akita, the palette expanded to the cool blues and greens of Lake Tazawa, Japan’s deepest lake.
This October, I had the priviliege of exploring Akita by bicycle with three other Aussie cyclists. What we found was an autumnal wonderland. Here is part one of our spectacular journey.
