You see genuine Akita Inu and are surprised at size of the Akita Inu, and please be healed by the face pretty kindly.
The Akita Inu is faithful to an owner, but does not often take to you other than the owner and the person knowing it well. I may seem to be salty treatment, but it is also "a figure of the Akita Inu".
Therefore there is much Akita Inu that it is hard to be touched other than the owner and the person knowing it well. You want more customers to enjoy "a figure of the Akita Inu", and, also, please note that you do not perform so-called "contact" in consideration for a health side of the Akita Inu and the security of the customer in this museum.

Way of enjoying Akita Dog Visitor Center

①At first I enjoy the appearance

Shibuya Station is a motif for the second generation when Chuken Hachiko was waiting for a return of the master as for the appearance at the time. A statue of Hachi-ko which stares straight at JR Odate Station recalls me to those days.
The clock tower of 18 meters in height is a sight, too.

②I enjoy the whole introspectiveness

Please enjoy the space of the opening-like colonnade.
A photograph of Shibuya Station at the time is posted on the entrance right hand side space for the second generation.

③I thoroughly enjoy a beautiful spiral staircase

A beautiful spiral staircase in accord with the atmosphere in the building attracts an eye. I see it and quit it and I take it and quit it and feel the feelings of the craftsman from upper gatteyoshide, a handrail to the details of the step.
As the atmosphere of the building changes completely when I go up to the middle and sees it, it is a perfect photo spot.

④I overlook a town of Odate on a terrace

I can overlook a town of Odate when I go on the terrace.
The size that "the Daimonnji" seen on the east side is what above all number one in Japan!
The Daimonnji created by Komagata modelled after the steep slope of Mount Houou is super huge with 120 meters of 1 image eye, 2 image eyes 180 meters, 150 meters of 3 image eyes! By "a Daimonnji festival to be carried out in August," the best Daimonnji firing in Japan and the contest of fireworks are sights.

⑤I thoroughly enjoy an Akita Inu museum

An Akita Inu panel is met!
A lot of display that can know the Akita Inu including the characteristic of the origin and the Akita Inu of the Akita Inu! I introduce a photograph and the episode of the pet dog which had you apply in "our *ji*".
An Akita Inu tree of the best part!
A quite popular stuffed toy with MASARU of the Akita Inu given Russian skater arena Zagitova as a model is piled up more than 160 bodies!

⑥I meet it with Akita Inu at last!

I am seen, but an Akita Inu exhibition room recommends a state of the inside over glass from an Akita Inu museum when you want to look at Akita Inu directly.
It is healed on tulip ear, the tail which I surrounded around in a big body, triangle kindly by a pretty expression.

※In consideration for a health side of the Akita Inu and the security of the customer, I partition it off with the fence of the tree between Akita Inu and customers displaying it. The photography (please refrain from the flash) is possible.

⑦I do shopping at a souvenir corner

A lot of height of Akita Inu stuffed toy and Akita Inu goods including the key ring!
Let alone a souvenir of Odate and Akita, there is the Akita Inu beer, too. Anyway, assortment of goods is great!
