Goal: Visit the 3 great festivals in the Tohoku region – Kanto (Akita), Nebuta (Aomori), Tanabata (Sendai) additionally checking out the two great lakes Tazawa and Towada.
So my feet are actually still hurting from Mt fuji and Nikko but I got some blister plaster, let’s see how things will go. The goal is to visit all 3 great festivals of the Tohoku region within a week.
Google maps was very helpful in planning the itinery since it even had data about bus and boat routes. Once the festival was over i had to stay in another city over night, since the hotels in those cities were already booked or too expensive.
