Kawabatta-Dori has many restaurants and bars, and is a feast for the eyes when it is in full swing. Not for the timid - it gets downright lurid and dodgy the further south you wander.

drinking area for Akita City, lots of izakaya and so on, popular with young Japanese people for a night out, maybe until dawn !! young guys seem to like wearing suits for their drinking sessions. don't expect to pick up any Japanese chicks if you don't speak Japanese, although you could probably get by just saying 'beer' to the bar...
