This museum has a lot of information about the role of Akita dogs in Japan through history. There is a nice tribute to Hachiko, the most- loved dog ever in Japan.

Just outside of the Akita Dog Museum is a Hachiko memorial. Inside, on the ground floor is their office, with souvenirs available for sale. The museum is on the third floor, but everythings in Japanese. They usually have a couple of Akita dogs around.

Took the train from Aomori Station to a pre-arranged visit at the Akita Dog Museum. There were a couple of dogs on site that we could mingle with, and a local English-speaking breeder met us there. He took us through the museum, covering the history of the breed, its near extinction, and its repopulation. He told us stories of the breed’s loyalty and explained the key points necessary for a champion dog. Much of his information was likely covered in signs throughout the museum but we don’t read or speak the language. Our visit was very worthwhile and everyone was very friendly.

นั่งรถไฟจาก Aomori ไปลงที่สถานี Odate พอถึงสถานีOdate จะมีบริการให้ยืมจักรยานสามารถขี่ไปในเมืองได้ฟรี เจ้าหน้าที่จะให้แผนที่และมาร์คตำแหน่งไว้ให้ (เจ้าหน้าที่พูดภาษาอังกฤษไม่ค่อยได้) ขี่จักรยานไปประมาณ 15 นาที ก็ถึงตึกอนุรักษ์สุนัขพันธุ์อคิตะ ตัวพิพิธภัณฑ์อยู่ที่ ชั้น 3 ค่าเข้าชมคนละ 200 เยน เปิดตั้งแต่ 9 โมงเช้า ถึง สี่โมงเย็นทุกวัน (แต่ควรสอบถามอีกที) ภายในแสดงข้อมูลประวัติความเป็นมาของสุนัขอคิตะ และประวัติของฮาจิโกะ แต่เป็นภาษาญี่ปุ่นล้วนๆ ใช้เวลาเดินดูไม่ถึง 10 นาทีก็หมด เพราะค่อนข้างเล็ก แต่ยังไงถ้าใครรักและสนใจสุนัขอคิตะ ถ้าได้มาเที่ยวแถวอาโอโมริ ก็ไม่ควรพลาด Taking a train from Aomori to Odate station nearly 1 hour.Then arrive at Odate station, You can rent a bicycle from the station and it's free of charge. The officer at Odate station will give you a map to the museum and also other spots in town. Riding a bike about 15 min. you will see the Akita building. Akita dog museum is on the 3rd floor of the building. Open daily 9.00-16.00. Admission fee is 200yen. Inside the museum shows the history of Akita dog breed and absolutely no English information at all, just Japanese only. and the museum is quite small and take a look around not over 10 minutes. By the way, If you love Hachiko and Akita dog , this is the place where dog lovers should visit
