I love Akita! I was born in Samoa, and raised in Utah. It’s a beautiful place, but I’ve always loved the ocean. Akita has everything I love, mountains, ocean, hot springs, delicious food, and wonderful people.
I first came here when I was 19. Leaving my family (10 brothers and sisters), was hard for me, but I soon felt at home here in this foreign place. I married an “Akita Bijin”, and have raised 3 children here.
Now, whenever I visit my family in America, it’s nice, but I’m always glad to come back “HOME” to Akita. I’ve spent most of my life here enjoying the nature, food and festivals of Akita, while hopefully giving back a little taste of America.
