One of the three main festivals in the Tohoku region, the Akita Kanto Matsuri is held in early August each year. This summer festival is held to pray for a good harvest of the five grains grown in the region: wheat, rice, beans, foxtail millet and Chinese millet. The festival is believed to date back to the 17th century.
