Akiu Kogei no Sato

Where skills blend with living in the environment.

Traditional crafts have been carried on for generations. Nine craftsman studios settled in this town and offer handy-work and creative authentic works.

Not only carrying on the tradition, but also pursuing the beauty in daily life expands the world into a fresh combination of the environment and their works. Their handy-work reveals the creators' passion subtly, and their hard work also has been and continues to be passed down.

From Azumaya built in the east to the Kokeshi-no-Mori, visitors enjoy sweeping views of Akiu-onsen hot springs resort area, an annex to Sendai. Each new year brings the extra beauty of local flora and fauna.
