    Aomori Goshogawara-shi Omachi 39
    This scenic railway in Okutsugaru is famous for its stove trains. The section from Goshogawara to Kanagi opened in 1930, and the entire line (20.7 kilometers) opened in November of the same year. Then, stove trains began running that December in the winter. The stove trains are in operation from December 1st to March 31st. During other periods, there are also wind chime and bell cricket trains.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our trip on Stove train. Beautiful scenery. Train comfortable but would advise seating near stove best.

  • Tohoku Emotion

    Hachinohe City, Aomori Prefecture Hachinohe Station - Kuji Station Kuji City Iwate Prefecture
    A Tohoku restaurant train which makes one round trip a day between JR Hachinohe Station and Kuji Station. Riders can enjoy dishes prepared with an abundance of Tohoku ingredients while gazing out over the sea of Sanriku from the train’s windows. The train’s cars are modeled after the image of a restaurant, and the interior is decorated in motifs making use of traditional Tohoku crafts. Of course, all of the train’s seats are dining seats. On the way out, you can enjoy a lunch course, while the dessert buffet course is served on the way back. The train’s chefs change every six months, and the train’s menu also changes four times a year, ensuring that repeat riders will never tire of the food.

    Aomori Pref. Goshogawarashi Omachi 39
    The Stove Train is a Tsugaru Railway train that runs from Tsugaru-Goshogawara Station to Tsugaru-Nakasato Station. It is equipped with coal-burning stoves in the carriages so passengers can keep warm while looking out at the passing picturesque winter scenery. Three round trips run every day from December through to the end of March (two round trips on weekdays in December only). The train has been running since the railway company first operated in 1930 and the current carriages are the fourth such carriages in operation.

    Aomori Hachinohe-shi Hachinohe Sta.-Kuji Sta.

    土日休日に八戸と久慈の間を走っている特別列車です。3両列車のうち1両目と3両目海側の1人席は席の向きを変えられ眺めがよいです。2両目はボックスタイプ。 指定席は1両だけで、ほか2両は自由席ですが、1人で4人分のボックスを占領している人も多く途中からでは座れません。せっかくの眺めの良い列車ですが、途中からの人は悲しい思いをすることになってしまうので、予約した方がいいでしょう。

Aomori Areas

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.
