I think Ishioka is worth a day trip, if not more.

How about a nice hike up Mt. Rokko in Kobe, with a stay at the Maya Hotel? Breathtaking!

And of course, there's always Gunkanjima.

Sorry.




I was thinking about including an old gold mine in Akita. When I went there they had the mine/museum itself (which was actually quite interesting and reasonably well done) and in another shaft they'd built a laser-tag-amusement-car ride. Which was amazingly cheesy. And therefore fun. But I couldn't for the life of me remember the name of the place.

I used to like Akita...but I got bored with it.
