    Where in Akita?

    If you let me know a more specific area, I might be able to find you better info...

    At the moment I see that the city of Nikaho Toursim Association has a MTB section, below is their address and contact info in Japanese, not sure if they have anyone competent in English.

    〒018-0158 秋田県にかほ市象潟町字琴和喜17番地1
    (社)にかほ市観光協会 マウンテンバイク係
    平日 9:00~17:00 TEL 0184-43-6608 FAX 0184-43-6609
    Eメール:mtb@nikaho-kanko.jp

    Seems there are trails on Mt Chokai (鳥海山).

    I live in Nikko in Tochigi prefecture and we are currently building a city endorsed beginner oriented 6km downhill run. With more trails for different skills and styles to come as time and weather permits. The MTB opportunties in Nikko will make it a destination location for recreation along with the standard history and beauty of the Nikko area. Anyhow.. let me know more about what kind of riding you want, and I can do my best and dig a little deeper.
