    Aomori Pref. Aomorishi Furukawa 1-11-16 Aomori fishes center
    The Aomori Gyosai Center in Furukawa Market is a famous seafood market for “Nokkedon.” Visitors can purchase tickets at the information desk, choose ingredients from about 30 shops in the hall, and have them placed on a bowl of rice. Besides sashimi, there is also miso soup, pickles, prepared dishes and meat as well. It is fun to walk freely around the market choosing the ingredients to top you own bowl of rice. It is approximately a five minute walk from JR Aomori station.

    You buy a set of tickets and walk around the market exchanging them for the fresh seafood you want. For a person like me who wants to sample a bit of everything, this is perfect! The seafood was all...

    Aomori Shimokita-gun Omamachi Oma 69-3
    A sushi restaurant established in 1964. Located a five-minute drive from Cape Oma, the northernmost point of the main Japanese island of Honshu, this popular establishment uses choice tuna weighing over 100 kilograms, considered the highest class of tuna. In addition to standards such as magurodon tuna rice bowls and tuna nigiri sushi assortments, with an advance reservation customers can enjoy the restaurant's tuna course meal. The famous establishment is a great destination for tuna-lovers, and depending on the time of year, the restaurant may also serve tuna from the waters off the coast of Aomori Prefecture. Note that as the restaurant closes irregularly, prospective customers should be sure to contact the establishment before going.

    I travelled MEL-SYD-HND-HKD-OMA - literally non-stop from Melbourne, Australia to Oma, Aomori in 17hrs for a 3 day stay. Oma is literally ground ZERO for Hon-Maguro (本マグロ) - the best of the best Blue...

    Aomori Pref. Hirosakishi Noda 1-3-16
    This Western-style confectioner is located beside Kita-oh-dori Avenue along the east side of Hirosaki Castle. The showcase on the first floor exudes a bright feeling with white as a motif. In contrast, the second floor has an eat-in space, featuring a chic, grown-up atmosphere colored in black. Popular products include the apple pie, as one might expect from Aomori Prefecture—an apple paradise. The taste is great, and the volume has it hanging over the plate, so it’s known as a place where you get a good deal for the price.

    Angelique provides quality for money, no doubt. The cakes and pastries not only look very good, the taste very good! The Mont Blanc is a must! A true French experience in Hirosaki. Yet, the place...

    Located on the shore of Lake Towada, this Japanese diner serves regional dishes made with kokanee landlocked salmon from the lake, noodle dishes, rice bowls, the restaurant's own apple pie, and more. Emphasizing freshness in its kokanee, the restaurant's kokanee sashimi, made with fish caught that day, is wonderfully taste. Depending on the day's catch, the restaurant may run out of stock early.

    ガイドブックでおすすめされていたバラ焼きをオーダー。飲食店がかなり減ってしまった為にここは人気店舗だった様子。午後1時過ぎに行っても前に数グループ待っていらっしゃってと。 料理そのものは極めてオーソドックスな玉ねぎと豚バラ肉の焼き物。器に火を掛けた状態で供されて、自分の焼き加減でいただくスタイル。 味はタレもよく、ご飯が進む味。

    A cafe located on the first floor of the Former To-o Gijuku Missionary Residence where you can take a break in a quiet, historic building. Particularly recommended from the cafe's food menu is the France Gozen B meal, a French meal set eaten with chopsticks. Including a meat dish, fish dish, apple sherbet, and coffee or tea, the meal is a feast for the eyes, tongue, and stomach.

    A local cuisine restaurant located along Prefectural Route 3 in Dote Town, Hirosaki City. Hibiki serves local kaiseki course cuisine making use of local ingredients as well as local Aomori sakes. In addition, one of the restaurant’s highlights is the live Tsugaru Shamisen music performances held on its stage from 7:00 p.m. most evenings. Coupled with the Tsugaru regional accents of the staff, you can get the full Tsugaru Aomori experience right here.

    レストラン形式で演者からの距離はありますが、もともと音量の大きい三味線なので十分楽しめました。またいろいろ郷土料理をリーズナブルな料金で楽しめました。

    Aomori Pref. Kamikitagunshichinohemachi Tatenogashira 69
    This gelato is hand-made each day from the rich milk of the Jersey cows reared freely and milked each morning on the shop’s farm. Seasonal fruit and vegetable flavors are particularly popular. The shop only uses its own home-grown fresh vegetables and local produce and offers limited availability and seasonal menus. Limited availability items may become unavailable once they have sold out so if you find a flavor you like, you had better go for it! It is around 17 minutes by car from Kamikitacho Station on the Aoimori Railway.

    Thye always have interesting seasonal flavors, and my kids think it’s neat to play on the tractors out front.

    Aomori Pref. Hirosakishi Oyakatamachi 44-1 Niko Building 1F
    Anzu is a restaurant where customers can listen to impressive live performances of Tsugaru shamisen (a traditional stringed instrument) while dining on fresh food from both the sea and land. Live performances are held twice a day for 30 minutes at 7p.m. and 9p.m. Since the musicians perform without a microphone, customers say that the realisticfeeling is somewhat different from that of a typical live show using a microphone. The interior, decorated with kites and paper goldfish lanterns, is centered on an open hearth, and in the winter, it is possible to charcoal broil shellfish, such as scallops, spear squids, and red king crab.

    Its one of the worst experience in n Japan. They treat foreigners so badly that it feels racism. Never experienced such bad treat in more than 60 visits to Japan. I was denied entrance the first...

Each shop offers an array of recommended seafood stocked fresh that day, and you'll struggle to choose. The restaurant also offers ramen and other dishes.

    Upon entrance to this restaurant serving seasonal seafood from the waters off Hachinohe and senbei-jiru soup, customers are greeted with a nanbu magariya longhouse-style interior which harkens back to a bygone time everywhere one looks. The restaurant offers reasonably priced lunch dishes on weekdays such as a fisherman's rice bowl set, the Ra Puraza-tei lunch special, and a lunch mini kaiseki course meal.

    現代日本において久々に[価格に見合わない]と感じた。 サバの刺身は一切れ300円でこの味ですか。福岡のサバのほうが倍おいしく安かった。ホタテや他の魚介も総じて同様の印象で、首都圏のスーパーと変わらんですね。生ビールのお値段からしても、首都圏でもそこそこの価格で出していますが、やはり地方は競合が少なくて観光客がいるからやっていけるんですねという印象。しかし周囲にもとにかく店が無いので、、、本命のお店...

    “Kurayoshi,” a restaurant in a sake brewery storehouse dating from the Edo period, is famous for its dishes known as “the world’s best tempura noodles,” “the world’s best superior tempura noodles” and “duck hot pot” as well as the specialty of Kuroishi, “Tsuyu yakisoba”. Although the volume and price of “the world’s best tempura noodles” and “the world’s best superior tempura noodles” is surprising it is easy to understand their popularity. There is also an extensive menu offering other single items and Japanese-based meals. It is a 10 minute walk from Kuroishi Station on the Konan Railway Konan Line.

    Kuroishi is famou for its fried noodle in soup. It is one of the good restaurant in this city. You can eat the noodle and other food. They have a good hospitality.

    美味しい海の幸と地酒が楽しめました。八戸名物の「いかそうめん」と「サバのお寿司」が美味しかったです。どちらも地酒と一緒にいただきました。 お座敷の席でしたが、コロナ対策の換気や席の間隔を開けたりの工夫がなされており、楽しい八戸の夜を過ごすことができました。

The shop's soy milk, soy yogurt, soy ice cream, and okara soy pulp donuts are also popular.

Aomori Areas

around-area-map

Centuries-old stories of samurai at Kakunodate and the remains of millennia-old archaeological sites including the likes of Isedotai invite history buffs to delve into Aomori's fascinating history. As the most northern prefecture on the Japanese mainland, Aomori enjoys a cooler climate, which makes it a welcome escape from the southern cities for combining castles, art galleries, and summer festivals with the great outdoors.
