Unspoiled forests and delicious food

 Discover a land of abundant apples, rich culinary delights, and captivating natural beauty, where cherry blossoms, historic castles, and unspoiled wilderness await.

Discover Aomori

Shin-Aomori Station serves as the northernmost point for the Tohoku Shinkansen line, connecting it to Tokyo. It is unique in that it faces the sea, providing travelers with a scenic departure from the concrete jungle and a journey through lush landscapes. As you travel towards the tip of Japan’s main island, you’ll have the opportunity to visit relatively unexplored regions and experience the untouched beauty of the wilderness.

Venture out to the Oirase Gorge, one of the most beautiful river valleys in Japan. Witness the change of the seasons as you hike through primeval forests and follow the meandering streams that flow in deep woods. The beauty and serenity of the landscapes make it a hidden gem for adventurous travelers seeking uncharted experiences.

Hirosaki Castle is considered one of Japan’s most beautiful castles, featuring the Hirayama architectural style. Its hilltop position, defensive walls, and moats add to its charm. The adjacent park is a highlight, especially during spring when cherry blossoms create a memorable sight, attracting visitors for hanami picnics and celebrations. A must-visit for history, architecture, and nature enthusiasts.

Aomori is renowned for its bountiful fishery, and a visit to Furukawa Fish Market is a must for seafood lovers. Here you can try the famous Kuro Maguro (Bluefin Tuna), one of the region’s specialties known for its exceptional quality. Additionally, Ichigo-ni, a flavorful seafood stew, is an important part of the local cuisine, and well worth sampling during your travels. Regarding Aomori’s produce, this prefecture is famous for its apple production, responsible for 60% of Japan’s apples. Savor them fresh or enjoy apple-based desserts like whole apple pies. You may also be intrigued by Aomori’s sweet black garlic, grown locally and used in a myriad of ways.

For those interested in unique souvenirs, Aomori offers Tsugaru Lacquerware and Tsugaru Painted Kites. Tsugaru Lacquerware is known for its exquisite craftsmanship and beautiful designs, making it a great memento to bring back home. Tsugaru Painted Kites, on the other hand, are colorful and eye-catching traditional kites that reflect the local culture and artistry of the region.

If you visit Aomori in early August, you’ll have the chance to witness the Aomori Nebuta Festival. This vibrant event spans six nights and features dynamic dances and celebrations. The festival showcases a multitude of floats adorned with depictions of legends and historical figures. The floats come to life during the illuminated night parades, creating an energetic and captivating atmosphere. You can also explore Wa Rasse, the festival’s museum, and get a close-up view of the washi-and-wire floats while learning more about the festival’s traditions.

Aomori prefecture, with its natural beauty, lively festivals, delectable food, and traditional crafts, offers a diverse range of experiences for travelers seeking to delve into the charm of northern Japan.
