First time to visit Akita Prefectures

The Goza no Ishi Shrine

Tazawako Shrine, Japan
My 1st time to travel to Tazawako Lake, Akita.

At the northern end of the lake stands the Goza no Ishi Shrine on a site where the local lords used to come to admire the water in the feudal past. At the western end of the lake there is a famous golden statue of a woman named Tatsuko that has become a local symbol. According to legend, Tatsuko was a beautiful girl who prayed to retain her beauty forever but was instead cursed and turned into a dragon and eventually sunk to the bottom of Lake Tazawa.
