- There is a current lack of tourist information from official sources. Eg. the JNTO site doesn't even list Akita! If you are in the position to do so, please complain to relevant authorities about this! --Ianb 09:08, 12 Aug 2004 (UTC)
"Like much of Tōhoku, Akita's economy remains dominated by traditional industries, such as agriculture, fishing, and forestry."
This industries has been developped to chase the Ainu people.
from Ainu people : "Japanese policies became increasingly aimed at assimilating the Ainu in the Meiji period starting in 1868, outlawing their language, forcing them to use Japanese names, redistributing their land to Japanese farmers and restricting them to farming on government-provided plots and as labor in the Japanese fishing industry."
