    Aomori Pref. Aomorishi Yanakawa 1-112-15
    A museum located five minutes on foot from Aomori Station. This museum ship houses displays on its service as a railway liner since it began operating in 1908 from when it carried numerous passengers and cargo to Hakodate until it ceased service in 1988. The Hakkodamaru, which served as a ferry for the longest period of time, is preserved almost as if it were still in service. On self-guided tours around the ship visitors can enter the bridge and descend into the engine room.

    It is worth to spend 1,300 yen for a combined ticket to see the Memorial ship as other museums nearby. Strange to learn that even train cars can be transported by this ship to Hokkaido in the past.

  • Hakkoda Gourd Line
    Leisure / Hobbies
    Aomori Pref. Aomorishi Arakawa Kansuizawa
    The Hakkoda Gourd Line walking course with its well-maintained trails and easy walking got its name from its calabash-like shape. There are two routes, one taking 30 minutes and the other taking 60, but both offer a wonderful chance to enjoy the wetland and alpine plant scenery. It’s relatively easy to walk, but make sure you wear comfortable shoes. It’s about 40 minute drives from the Tohoku Expressway Kuroishi Interchange to the Hakkoda Ropeway.

    Aomori Pref. Aomorishi Asamushi Babayama 1-25
    About an 11-minute walk from Asamushi Onsen Station, this aquarium is at the northern tip of Honshu and overlooks Aomori Bay. With a large, free parking lot and the Asamushi hot springs nearby, it is convenient and accessible enough to draw in many visitors. The aquatic exhibits are crafted to mimic natural conditions closely. The “Waters of Mutsu Bay” is a tunnel-shaped tank that imitates Mutsu Bay, offering a view of farm-raised scallops and such. There are events and shows every season. The powerful and graceful performances of bottlenose dolphins and Pacific white-sided dolphins are interactive and particularly popular with visitors.

    Although it took forever to find, due to our lack of Japanese and not great signs, locate it and go! Have seen a few aquaria in our time, and usually not terribly happy after seeing conditions, this...

Aomori Main 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.
