Akita Castle Hotel is a 4-stars hotel located 850 meters from the Shinkansen JR Akita station in the north of Japan. Its modern building offers a comfortable base to sightseers visiting one of the regional capitals of the Tohoku area for a few days.

In line with its English name, the Akita Castle 🏯 Hotel 🏨 is located just opposite Senshu Park where remain the ruins of Kubota Castle, the heart of the ancient fortified feudal city during the Edo period (1603 – 1868). The hotel is therefore enjoying a very convenient central location, especially for guests traveling by train, as the JR station, a few minutes’ walk away, is served by the Shinkansen 🚅 directly from Tokyo. The area is also home to several interesting museums including the Akita Museum of Art and the City Folks Art Center Neburinagashi-Kan, as well as many shopping streets with shops and restaurants open in the evening.

Akita Castle Hotel, View of the building

A comfortable hotel with a high-quality look

The hotel spans 7 floors in a modern architecture building. In addition to accommodation, the Akita Castle Hotel also provides a facility rental service for private events like a wedding ceremony.

The friendly and cheerful staff welcomes customers in a large and sleek reception area. After thorough renovations, the place adopts a contemporary look and is at the level of a good business hotel. The interior design is classy, subdued and very classic, with very thick carpeting and dark wood furniture.
