The Foliages are now at its peak at Dakigaeri Gorge and near Lake Tazawa. If you are taking a bicycle ride around Lake Tazawa, Kata Bunko is a place you must stop by - especially now that the front tree is in beautiful, bright red!
Anyway, the school is known as a nostalgic atmosphere where you can time-travel back to your childhood! We can't stress enough how important this place is - this building has been visited by many people and serving as a community gathering place as well!
The building stands about 10 munites away from the lake shore. The bicycle roads are available to access there, and runs through anthentic rural scenery - houses with thatched roofs, rice paddies, etc.
Once you visit there, you would understand why this place is often exemplified as a symbol of preservance of regional and cultural building.
