Kaneyu is a nationally registered tangible cultural property and a symbol of Noshiro City, which once prospered due to its natural Akita cedar lumber industry. Put on a kimono and enjoy a tour and photoshoot in an old restaurant building constructed using natural Akita cedar in the sukiya-zukuri style (residential architectural style with tea ceremony aesthetic elements).
