Matagi Museum

Matagi are villagers who made their living through hunting animals such as bears deep in the mountains in ancient times. It is said that Matagi culture originated in Ani, Akita. At this museum, you can learn about their culture including wisdom for their everyday lives while seeing their unique hunting tools and clothing. Since Utto Onsen is located next to the museum, you can enjoy the onsen too. When there is an excess stock of Doburoku, a cloudy sake, you can buy it by volume, a traditional selling style.
