Perhaps the prefecture page should be "Akita" and this page should be "Akita City". Or perhaps, a disambiguation link is needed. -qwerty

For consistency, every prefecture in Japan with a city of the same name uses the same naming pattern, since as a general rule the city's the most common destination by far. (This is also site-wide policy.) I'd argue that this holds true for Akita as well. There are prominent links to the prefecture both in the hierarchy view at the very top and in the first paragraph, so it shouldn't be confusing or hidden. - Dguillaime 22:04, 1 December 2009 (EST)
I think the naming convention works well, and don't propose changing it, but anyway, maybe it's not true that Akita City is a more common destination than Akita Prefecture. Certainly the opposite for me. Orcrist 18:35, 17 July 2010 (EDT)
