Harvest moon appeared on October 3. Now is one of the best periods in Akita.
Akita is written in Kanji characters, ' 秋 and 田 ' , each of which means 'autumn' and 'rice fields'.
Akita is used for the name of a city and a prefecture, so our prefecture, ' 秋田県' (Akitaken), has a lot of rice fields, and is famous for its good rice and various products and dishes from rice.
Rice fields are very beautiful now, and you can enjoy their beautiful sights on our website: http://akitahaiku.wordpress.com/.
My haiku and picture also appeared on the site.
