Kakunodate is also a town in Semboku City, where the history and culture of the good old time still remains. Not only the view of the historical district, but also the traditional culture as in the local cuisine and arts and crafts are still full of life here, and you will have an enjoyable moment as you walk through the rows of houses. The cherry blossom trees along the river and the samurai houses are defenitely must-see.
