- Historical Romance "Jusanko" (30 minutes by car)
In Osamu Dazai's novel Tsugaru, "Tsugaru", the author describes Lake Jusanko as "a graceful but fleeting lake, like a shallow pearl shell filled with water". This area, called "Jusaminato", was a hub port in the medieval era for northern trade through the Sea of Japan and prospered in the medieval era, and there are many remains left by the Ando clan, a wealthy Tsugaru clan.
The reason why I started the homestay program:
Kanagi-cho is known as the home of the writer Osamu Dazai and the Tsugaru shamisen, but there are currently no lodging facilities in the town. So I decided to be the first one!
