If you are interested in the Marian apparitions in Akita you will be interested in the following website. If you are not interested you can still look too. Unfortunately it is not my trip as I haven’t had the chance to go there and honestly besides the shrine to Our Lady of Akita I don’t know of anything else to see. Fortunately someone has gone there and has posted a nice guide with photos of their trip.
