From WeSPa Tsubakiyama, go south for about 30km and cross the prefectural boundary of Akita. This course is an attractive course having the Japan Sea on the right and the Shirakami Mountains, the world heritage, on the left. Along the road is Michinoeki Hachimori, commonly known as "Ohmagoshi Street", which prospered through the ages as an important road along the Japan Sea. Let's relieve our thirst with "Otonomizu," a spring of Shirakami Mountains that the lords in old time praised. At the goal (Akita Shirakami Station), you can not only enjoy tasting sweets and shopping, but also bring your bike into the train and go back to Aomori prefecture because the staion is one of the stops on the Gono Line Resort Shirakami.
