Akita Prefecture in northern Japan is famous for its delicious Kiritampo cooking and the Akita dog breed that is originated there. The region was also home to the dog Hachi, who's story of loyalty to his master has been commemorated with statues and a movie starring Richard Gere.

Akita offers a unique sightseeing experience for travelers who are looking to get off the beaten path. Free samples of "kiritampo-nabe" stew and miso kiritampo will be available at the event. Come by to learn about all the exciting things Akita has to offer!

Three years ago, the Academy Award-winning animated film director Hayao Miyazaki shocked the world when he announced his retirement at age 72, but his creative impulse never faded. After meeting a group of young animators who specialise in computer graphics, he decided to make a short film using CGI to explore new expressive possibilities. The creative process, however, proves so difficult that he almost calls it quits. Will his short film change the future of Japanese animation?

Directed by Kaku Arakawa, this programme documents the tremendous struggle that unfolds behind the scenes as Miyazaki, inspired by a new medium, wrestles with CGI for the first time.
